The Swine Who Cried Wolf

Here's the problem. I don't believe anything my politicians or media personalities tell me anymore unless I want to hear it.

If they tell me a politician I dislike has been caught in corruption, I am quick to accept it because it fits the mold I have in my head.

If they tell me there's a dangerous pandemic on the loose, I don't take it seriously beacuse a) they usually grossly exaggerate these things, and have a good incentive to do so in the case of media (ratings), and b) i don't want there to be a dangerous pandemic on the loose.

So, if one actually comes, will we even believe it?
