The basic rule in information is trust no body except your intellect. I listen and read all media and people regardless of their reputation good or bad, but I analyze and form my own conclusion.
This rule applies to media, religion, academia, individuals, and politicians. The degree of trust is neither absolute nor fixed, at a time it is 90% and for the same source could be 0% in another issue.
Smart free people never ever submit their minds to anybody.
The information and disinformation war is real. So, watch out and guard your own freedom. No one will protect you for the sake of protecting you.
