I’ve been reading left-leaning and right-leaning publications lately in order to gain a better understanding of both sides. It’s really eye opening the propaganda used across the aisle. But it has helped my perspective. After all we can’t have unity without understanding, learning, and debating. Most of the time I just see left and right screaming at each other. There is no dialogue. Just name calling. This approach has also calmed me down. When one side is in hysterics, the other side may show another way to handle a situation. Anyway, it’s interesting and a valuable lesson on how the media can twist a story the way they want. Due to this, I’ve lost a lot of respect for cable news channels and their hosts. To get to the truth, there’s nothing better than the printed word, Google, and statistics and facts.
