I read the Washington Post, the NY Times, occasionally USA today. I get the occasional scoffs from people about the news being crap and over hyped and how they focus on the wrong things and are unreliable blah blah blah. Listen, I don't disagree with those criticisms and I sometimes make them myself... But I'm an adult and I can read news stories and take the content with a grain of salt. I can read something and realize that if it's a political piece that it's one point of view, and that there may be others. I can read and understand that further verification is needed. Most importantly, I read from MULTIPLE sources (not just the papers mentioned) .What ISN'T good is ignoring the news and getting your information shitty social media sources or your conspiracy spewing friends and family members and taking that feces at face value.
