 Re:

TMK

I hear you. The media have actually helped me develop critical thinking skills because I have come to realize they don't tell the whole story. Only what they want you to know so I go back to the interrogatives of journalism. Who, what, when, where, and why. Answer those questions and you begin to get a better picture of the story. Thus the reason I go back and forth between Liberal and Conservative sights. I do some of this in twitter. I sub to them and see stories come across.

I have noticed that media is quickly becoming out moral compass 'leaders'. Meaning they are quick to say someone is wrong or they don't agree with someone voicing opposition to something that is popular such as transgenderism, abortion, something in politics. A mantra is becoming 'It is happening anyway'= pop culture, the new moral compass and anyone who holds 'traditional values' is considered outdated and are out of touch with society.


I often believe Christians want to believe the best even if the best becomes a false story. We need to be slow to speak but speak with Grace while growing in Grace through Jesus Christ.

 Re:

I don't find any of them credible. I read everything in the news through jaundiced eyes and full on cynicism. I am not Jesus but it does not take long in Him to be enough like Him that we can say we know what is in the hearts of men.

 Re:

Journalists have changed tremendously. Oftentimes you can quickly ascertain that they are in a specific political camp. And are not reporting the news in an unbiased manner.

So to me, all "Journalism" should be suspect today and I think it is by and far by many people. The Internet has revealed many things to us, and much to Journalism's chagrin, it has revealed to us their partisanship and dishonesty (which may have always existed). Reading people's comments on many articles you can see they have become more astute in their critical thinking skills. Another by product of deception journalism. We all have to be astute.

Big hearty amen to that, dolfan.

 Re:

This just came across my newsfeed. I was amused because it was from WND. What do you think about this?

 Re: WND

John, what news service do you consider the most reliable? And how do you determine that?

 Re:

I don't have any news service that I consider 100% reliable. What I do is practice the who, what, when, where, how and why of a story. Then I usually will take that story and cross reference it with out media outlets to see who is saying what about it.

Reason is because Liberals have their spin on it and sometimes it is true and sometimes it is false. Same with Conservatives, sometimes is it true but other times it is false or doesn't have all the facts.


Other times, if I want to understand more on a story, i.e. Kim Davis, I sit on it for a little while until more facts come out before I am make up my own mind as to what the truth is. Liberals will be against her while Conservatives will be for her. The question is why and is the pro side right and why, is the con side right and why.

It is easier to lean on more Conservative media for news but keep, in the back of your mind, are they telling you the entirety of the truth or is there something not being said?

I used Twitter as a feed for news stuff and I probably have more liberal outlets on it then I do Conservative outlets. I do that because I want to know what they are sqawking about and why they get so offended. Liberal media gets offended by everything anymore. I don't look at ABC, CBS, FOX OR NBC online. They are too mainstream. I like to read the things they don't talk about much.

One outlet I came across that is fascinating is one called the Federalist. It seems like it gives a good analysis on issues of the day.

 Re:

Even the "who, what, when, where, how and why" of a story can be created by professional propaganda specialists.

John, here are some stories that are very controversial. How would you go about arriving at the truth? As an internet surfer or TV watcher, how do you go about arriving at the truth using the "who, what, when, where, how and why of a story?" Those elements seem to all be covered in these stories yet we know there is only one truth.

1) 9/11 carried out by Muslims or U.S. Government?
2) Bombing of Reichstag building carried out by Hitler's men or Communists?
3) Sandy Hook, hoax or not?
4) IRS conspired with White House to withhold tax exempt status from Tea Party groups or not?
5) U.S. Ambassador to Benghazi purposely abandoned by his own government or not?
