Follow As Many News Sources As You Can

They are all true, in their own unique way.

“There are three sides to every story: your side, my side, and the truth. And no-one is lying.”

You see, truth itself is an unstated fact. It can only be found in the surrounding evidence. You know there are bushfires ravaging Australia’s east coast, not because someone told you, but because you see the pictures and videos. You see the harrowing calls for help. You see the brazen aftermath.

“Trump and congressional Republicans have complained about the process from the very beginning, and they’re likely to continue raising these procedural concerns until the bitter end.”

Ain’t those some harsh negative words! My point is if you were to simply just follow CNN, you’ll likely end up hating Trump in an unbiased way. This is not so much of a bad thing when you consider how megalomanic he is, but it doesn’t help with constructive critical thinking. Words are powerful weapons, as they say.

NEWSFLASH! ALL MEDIA ARE BIASED

“ There are three sides to every story: your side, my side, and the truth. And no-one is lying.”

The thing is, all the news outlets, whether left, right or central, will always tell the truth. They are bound by it. But the way you see that truth depends on how it is told to you, or even if it’s told at all. And if you want to be a true free thinker, you need to open yourself to all sides of the story.

Just your friendly gay man setting the record straight.
