You know what is most depressing?
There was a time- not that long ago- when if someone set you straight or gave you factual information (instead of the bullshit masquerading to be factual) you’d say. ‘Thanks for setting me straight’ -or ‘Sorry, I didn’t know that[ or anything along those lines.
Now, some people just hunker down and propagate their bullshit with even more ferocity.
I don’t know if that is more sad or pathetic.
