Its common sense really.
There are tons of commonly held misconceptions held by the general public.

Just because I won't google up a shitload of sources, doesn't mean there is no credibility. I rarely see anyone else give sources for what they post.

So take you elitist intellectual high horse moral BS and stick it up your ass, or do the research yourself if you are so interested. But, I don't think you are, because you know what you would find.

First of all, in this post you made several claims without providing any evidence. Since you have made the claims, the burden of proof is on you. I don't have to research anything, you have to. Second of all, you don't have to google up a 'shitload of sources', one is sufficient if it's a credible one. The reason why you don't see many people backing up their posts with sources is because they usually don't use studies to validate their argument. If they do, they have to provide a source for that study just like you do. Third of all, what makes you think that asking someone to validate his claims is equal to "elitist intellectual high horse moral BS"? Are you unable to articulate yourself without using ad hominems?

Last but not least, feel free to respond to me once you have learnt how to have a civilized and mature conversation. Until then, I'm going to ignore you.

Yes, let's terminate the amendment that enables you to say this retarded stuff. If your goal is to find a fair and balanced news station, you'll have to eliminate humans from the equation.

Thats like saying that human engineering is faulty, and therefore all man made artifacts are faulty, thus we should abandon all technology. Its truly pathetic and absurd.

RE: Pseudo-Journalism & Political Lies
I got a bit curious since I agree that it does sound like common sense, but I know that just because something sounds true it doesn't have to be Tongue

I found this page
http://www.brainathlete.com/rumors-hear-repeated/
which references wikipedia which references an old study from -77 that doesn't seem to be available online... but after learning it's called Illusion-of-truth it's quite easy to find lots of studies and research...

You must be the God of Strawman on this thread. Yes, it is faulty, and all man-made artifacts are faulty. Did I say we must abandon all journalism? Where did I say that? Please, point it out somewhere. You are dealing with absolution. Your extremity in fixing biased journalism is equivalent to banning all emotion to stop conflict. It makes no sense.

Fine, switch out tech for regulators then. Whatever.

This is just another form of govt regulation.

Yes, but my entire point was asking; How do you regulate what that person is doing? What makes you think this government appointed person fact-checking is a unbiased party? What segment of the government is controlling this department? How is this segment's members going to be unswayed by money the same way other similar types of organizations have been in dealing with politics.

If it's able to be regulated, the party in control may have a strong inclination to make sure those "fact checkers" are making decisions that lean in their favor.
