We hear it all of the time....
Fake news this, fake news that.... and often it comes with a political statement that ONLY my news source is legitimate. And we are getting to the point where each party has an approved news source. This is paramount to a state news source. Truth is both sides lie, have issues and twist things to fit their narratives. Ignore inconvenient facts, etc.
In Communist Russia the approved news source was Pravda
Which translates into the word "Truth" as in the true news, but the Russians had a joke it was "there is no truth in Truth." So every time someone tells me that their news source is the true news source I always think to myself, but there is no truth in Truth.
And I am certainly not saying that any one side is to blame, both political extremes have decried the other sides news as "fake news" or even worse "the enemy" even going so far as to attack news reporters left and right.
The Freedom Of The Press is an important part of democracy, the right to open up discussion is necessary for the continuation of democracy we need to hear the truth and we need to be able to look at other opinions
and without any way to figure out what is real in a scientific, repeatable way we, as a society, will flounder. This is a cliff that we must avoid.
Anyway I'd be happy to hear your thoughts.
