Online news sources
« on: May 20, 2018, 09:41:11 AM »
When we reference an article online, is it better to use the original (Liberal) source or a truthful source (Conservative or Libertarian)?

My though process is to use the original source to accurately quote them in their own words, so that we could use it against them.
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

I'm with you on OC. Especially when we're tearing the article to shreds, but if the rewrite is a good burn in its own right, that's fine too.
Example of bad posts is an original NY Slimes article reposted twice over, from ABC, to CBS then posted by the Huffpost.
But I'm anal that way, I like to take the original and expose the spin as it recirculates throughout leftist sites.
