Reject the mainstream machine of misinformation.

News is entertainment. We let it become that. It’s not going to stop being that. I’ve seen how this sausage is made. There are some very hardworking people who want to tell you what’s really happening, and those people are completely beat down and trampled by people trying to make money by telling you whatever you want to hear so long as you sit through the ads and make them money.
The internet has its own flaws. Misinformation is just as rampant, it just typically isn’t for profit, unless you can pay rent with “teh lulz” or the satisfaction that your lies will keep those uppity minorities down.
Always be skeptical. Always seek out information from many different sources. Take nothing at face value. Question things constantly.
