If there’s a sudden news story that takes up all the oxygen… even displacing the Presidential race from the 24-hour news cycle… be ready to bring the conversation BACK to where it belongs.
Share this story to remind everyone where their attention needs to be focussed.
It doesn’t have to be ‘horrible’ news, either. It could be little Timmy being saved from a well. The KIND of distraction doesn’t matter, so long as the presstitutes ‘change the channel’.
