In a day when everyone wants to say other news outlets are “fake news”, can there be anything such as trustworthy news?
News reporters who report to a base will willingly say things that are not true to insight a people to say and do things for them.
If you forgot about this, then be reminded. If you didn’t know this, learn it quickly. Recently, Alex Jones and InfoWars.com have retracted inflammatory remarks it once reported as factually true after a lawsuit was filed.
When you listen to anyone talk about anything it’s always best to begin looking for primary sources they are using. If they’re not using sources, ask for them to verify. If they have a pattern of not using credible sources, stop trusting them and stop sharing their stories.
This is a good reminder for all of us.
Some guidelines for listening ears…
- Listen for truth.
- Don’t be satisfied with opinion primarily.
- Read as many primary sources as possible.
- Don’t share everything you read as fact.
- Read and listen to media with awareness of what and who you are listening too.
- Interesting media reports are more driven by opinion than truth.
- Just know what’s influencing you. Don’t play the part of the fool by the manipulating media.
- Attend local government meetings.
- Ask good questions and listen for logically true answers before you formulate an opinion.
Why did it take a lawsuit to get truth from Alex Jones? Can Alex Jones and InfoWars.com be trusted as reliable news?
