Just discouraging that sources are not trusted, and really, somebody needs to fact check the fact checkers... Ask yourself - what's stopping them? Why do the fact checking sites almost always tell the same story? Why aren't some of them (actually, at least half of them..) fact checking and coming to the opposite conclusion? Here's a big hint, it's because you can generally verify what the fact checking sites say, from other sources, from going back to the original quotes and context, from digging up the actual statistics or raw data. I have to say that the US seems to have a huge hole in their education system, in the area of teaching people how to find/recognise credible sources and how to actually do research. And that's why it is has been so easy for manipulative websites and a quite well-organised set of media campaigns, to so easily fool a lot of people - people already with a huge (and justified) mistrust of the gubmint.. 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
