I surf the news a lot. Left, Right, Center.
I can't help wondering how one decides which news sources/stories to believe these days. If I were to guess, I'd have to say that it's likely based on preexisting personal political ideology. I can't find anything to legitimize the possibility that it's anything more or less than that.
How should we look at the day's events?
IGNORE all of the conjecture, unsubstantiated facts/evidence, news and social media, opinions, etc.? Look at the few facts that are substantiated and start connecting the dots? Ask yourself what that logical process leads you to believe [without outside interference], and that becomes your truth until more substantiated facts/evidence comes out?
I don't know.
Another thing... It seems like a lot of speech from the Right is being identified as "extremist speech" or "hate speech" or "supremacist speech".
What's going on here? I really have this bad feeling that the folks who disagree with anything involving the Leftists are being identified and watched. I think it is a concerted, planned effort to discredit anyone who believes differently than the Left. Am I paranoid? :)
