You cant just say that without citing any sources. You have to make a wall of text with sources to each claim or you just sound like a nut

But if the sources are YouTube videos and natural news blog posts then you still sound like a nut

If the debate is between factual evidence and studies versus “well I think”, the reality is obvious.

Do you even have the understanding to read a study or do you only rely on others to interpret it for you?

If you’re going in with the preconception that Academia and by extent Institution’s data is invalid due to bias, you’re going to equate someone’s baseless notions and thoughts as legitimate ‘takes’.

I live with a reporter for the mainstream media (large public broadcasting station) and get to experience her job from the home office. Editorial meetings involve arguments about what to cover and how.

"Everything" includes a lot of bullshit opinions, and it's folly to assume we each have the background necessary to separate truth from falsehood across every topic.

You pivoted and continued to talk about nonsense. Classic “I have all the answers” response. Source: I live by a farm and know all about horseshit

That’s the point. There is nothing to believe because every authoritative source of truth is also pushing an agenda. The best we have is to use a secondary flow of information that “we” are in control of; we already have that in word of mouth. It ultimately just comes down to whether you want to trust the internet people who are “just like you” or the internet people that get to keep their platforms because they lie to you(and these are actually just the same group of people 90% of the time).

The news media is not an original source, so your argument is irrelevant.

"If i don't see it, it doesn't exist" can work for you and empower someone to do unethical sh*t to you.

Even if he cites sources you'll just say they aren't reputable enough. I've seen this play out a million times, it's not worth the effort.

You miss all the shots you don’t take.

Sometimes the only winning move is not to play. Like global thermonuclear war.
