Disinformed Electorate

Article - Our Disinformed Electorate
by Factcheck.org

Warning {This thread is not geared towards any one group. Please don't make this into a Dem v. Rep thread.}

Factcheck.org is not the best reference for information; however, they did bring up something to worry about. Disinformation. How much truth can be found in what we read or see? Forumite The Doctor talked in another thread about corporations attempting to control your environment. We see advertising messages everywhere we walk; thus, we are fed so much information on a daily basis. How much of it is valid? Corporations and politicians try to control the message, but how do we weed through the information to find truth?

Quote:
We humans tend to marry, date, befriend and talk with people who already agree with us, and hence are less likely to say, "Wait a minute – that's just not true."
