Who do you believe?
“Yes, but who do YOU believe?” I asked her again, in frustration, as we seemed to be going round and round.
“I believe my government not your government. Your government is always spreading negative stories about my country and they are NOT true!” Her voice was rising in tone as she got more angry with me for repeating the same accusations that my government regularly made. “Your government NEVER supplies any evidence, just making wild accusations. Of course, my government is peaceful and has no interest in interfering in your internal matters, so why can’t you leave us alone and sort out your own mess first!”
“You’ve been brainwashed since birth to believe the stuff your government fills your head and they keep repeating day after day in these press conferences. Don’t you ever want to ask some awkward questions of your own government – just for once? Isn’t that what an investigative reporter should be doing?”
