People are victims of their own beliefs in how ‘things should be; or are’. You see on the news every day how ‘journalists’ have watched a presentation by [say] the Federal Minister for Health, then subsequently mis - report his remarks. I believe that this is primarily because ‘they’ are focussed on a question they have been told to ask.
 
They then hear neither what went before, neither the response. I can prove it. 
 
 
 
 
 
The astute among us will see the same game played at every CORONA press conference held by ScoMo, The Federal Health Minister and The Chief Medical Officer. These three know who will report accurately and question accurately; Ms Michelle Grattan. The doyen of the press gallery. She is older than Methuselah and [although her politics are possibly somewhere to the left of Joe Stalin, brutally bi - partisan]. 
 
Michelle Grattan always always sits ‘front, speakers’ right’ [God help any poor sod who even thinks of sitting there]. She always gets the first question; because of trust. Other ‘reporters’ will button hole Michelle afterwards to check FACTS. People who listen to what is said or written, not just ‘hear’ it, will always have the jump on the rest of us.
 
So,

A MUTE PERSON
 
GOES INTO A SHOP AND WANTS TO BUY A TOOTHBRUSH.
 
BY IMITATING THE ACTION OF BRUSHING HIS TEETH HE
 
SUCCESSFULLY EXPRESSES HIMSELF TO THE SHOPKEEPER AND THE PURCHASE IS MADE.
 
NEXT, A BLIND MAN COMES INTO THE SHOP WHO WANTS TO BUY A
 
PAIR OF SUNGLASSES; HOW DOES HE INDICATE WHAT HE WANTS?
 
It is really very simple. 
He asks for it.
