If your source of news has a consistent opinionated narrative, it isn’t news, it’s propaganda.
True news delivers the details without spin.
It should be up to individual audience members to make up their own minds based on the information provided and not have opinions marketed to them in order to promote a particular agenda.
Stories can be easily altered by repeatedly focusing on a single point, perspective, or person or by not sharing or airing key details.
Learn to recognize when you’re being mislead, misdirected, and manipulated by the media.
Remember to fact check and don’t rely on only a single source of information (or meme).
Know that there is always more than a single side to a story and that repeatedly stating something doesn’t make it true.
Refuse to let the media pit you against people or causes you know nothing about except what they’ve told you.
Form your own opinions, don’t let your opinions be formed for you.
“How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.” — Abraham Lincoln
