with news organizations becoming more biased, with dirtier tricks, how do you reconcile the conflict of opinions/facts
I'd love to know how each of you decides what side of an argument to be on. Do you simply turn to a news channel or read a paper that speaks in your favorite tone? or do you find other ways to objectively investigate a subject to its core, digging out actual facts, not digitized opinions made to look like facts?
in this day and age, how can a person living a normal 9-5 life decipher the truth or at least the facts of a situation from the deliberate, subjective, noise that's put out there...? the question of "which side are you on?" in the digital age is becoming harder and harder to answer. I'd love to hear what sources you think are objective and which are not, how (and if) you've ever been proven wrong or presented with new facts that made you change your mind on a certain subject or story...
the internet opens up a world of opinions that sometimes seem to drown the facts, even fabricate them sometimes - how do approach the task of making up your mind without spending dozens of hours researching a topic? is there another way? the old adage "don't believe everything you read" seems even more pertinent nowadays than ever before - but what's the alternative? what's the methodology or system you use?
I find this fascinating and would love to hear what people out there do in order to balance out media noise, subjective blog post and opinions from the truth and how they use it on a daily basis...
