    So, here I was reading an interesting article on the constitution party's website (Link). As I was sitting here fuming to myself about the issues presented in the article I had to remind myself something, I was reading an article on a political party's website, this means there is probably a lot of bias in the article. Re-read the article, and couldn't figure out exactly if I should be believing the facts and figures.

    So, how do you treat news/articles and suspected bias?

    Lots and lots of reading. The same as trying to find the right heads when building an engine.

    Reseach, research!!

    ANY article that does not present both sides of an issue, is biased. That has always been my viewpoint.:D

    I read conservative & liberal commentary about issues in the news, and I get my news from a few different sources..that helps me understand how news stories are framed and spun.. I also do a lot of my own research on subjects I'm interested in.. Then I filter and process the information according to my own biases & prejudices.. for example.. my knowledge of the efforts of the left to bring down america since the 30's enables me to reject the platforms of the democratic party to this day..

    I admit I'm not open minded, but I also don't believe objectivity is a human trait..

    it's funny that you bring this up because dennis kucinich, our moonbat congressman, is demanding that all right wing talk radio be like hannity & colmes.. in other words, present both sides.. I for one hope it happens, because the more people hear both sides, the more people choose conservatism..

    Definitely do lots of research, a lot of people/orginizations with questionable agendas. I did a lot of reading and found a couple of sources that actually gave some reliable FACTS and now I just read what they have to say when I want to know the truth about what was said on TV or in the headlines. If you really want the truth you'll find it, just use some common sense and all the B.S. will become obvious.

    Excellent point made :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: !!

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with partitionship!!


    They're trying to bring back the 'Fairness Doctrine'.
    Reagan lifted that in 1986. They tried do it in the '90's and it failed.
    It's to silence conservative talk shows.
