    I've learned a lot about MSM during the last two years.......and am very disappointed with journalism as a whole.

    Here's a quick little test to see if one is able to understand the difference betten fact/opinion, and how to spot biased words and qualifiers.

    Spotting biased words and qualifiers

    And the article I quoted is very biased and has many qualifiers, even though it's about the biased media.

    I guess we gravitate toward anything that supports our own perspective in the world. I guess we each have to determine what we think are the facts and then filter out the qualifiers.
