Nope. I always try to correlate stories across three or four other news sources.


Drew follows that approach too. If he reads something on Breitbart, he makes sure its corroborated on Infowars, The Drudge Report and Blaze as well.

Usually, yes, I trust it well enough.

When shit like this happens, people make a big deal out of it.

His edits were pretty stupid anyway -- who puts a different moderator's name in there? Not smart, and the mod community was rightly pretty pissed at him.

You pick them 'sites/cites' of what you "entrusted" from any, since you only shall "accept" theirs then. Those of US with 'chocolates' shall also 'partake' for such! colonist

Quote:

The only thing of note here is that the people on the right are finally speaking out. This sort of shit has been going on for years all across the internet.
