Who said it’s true, just because it is in the news? Who said it’s relevant, just because it is talked about a lot? Who said the most interesting of the new in the world is in there at all? Who ever had the idea that the way it is presented is neutral?

Who said reading the newspaper is important, and what motivation did they have for saying so?

When we choose to be influenced by view points and opinions, we choose to be influenced by a culture, too. Be careful to agree with what the culture you choose to listen to stands for, before you accept it too far into your life. Even if you are very, very conscious, it will color you.
