Q: clarifying the importance of making critical evaluations of news stories
A: It is always important to think critically about what you hear and read and see. [ By "critically," I do not mean you must criticize or be negative; but you should not automatically believe everything, just because you saw it on TV (or in your favorite magazine). Most journalists do try very hard to report the news fairly, and much of what is on the air and in print is well-researched. But even
the best news reporter can get it wrong: perhaps their sources were not entirely honest, or perhaps the reporter did not get both sides of the story, or perhaps all the facts were not available but the story was reported anyway. And sadly, sometimes there are people who intentionally want to mislead you by distorting or exaggerating the facts. A number of politicians have used the media in this way, and they are not the only ones. Too often, news consumers are not skeptical of the claims those in power are making; a critical evaluation of what they said is essential, in order to be an informed citizen. SOURCE: ]
