NASCAR didn’t care about the truth.

Almost everyone in the media didn’t care about the truth.

Curiosity, questions, and the search for the truth were dismissed as contrarian at best, racist at worst.

Media is broken. Society is broken.
The job of the media is simple. Question, analyze, critically search for the truth. Almost no one does.

And the reasons why are so selfish. Career opportunism, being liked, audience building, weakness, fear.

But there is a real cost to all this selfishness.
Of course credibility, what little is left, is destroyed in the media.

But more importantly: Distrust is sowed in society. Real claims of racism are undercut. Divisions inflamed. People die.

All because personal, brand, & industry projection was more important than the truth.
