Very little of what we once took for granted can be relied on anymore. The main stream media (MSM) for example is notorious for its deliberate omissions and routinely biased reporting.
Anyone seeking alternative news sources and viewpoints does so in an attempt to obtain more objective and factual reports.
While we must always be wary of the integrity of MSM, there is good reason to extend such caution to the alternative sources.
Consider the following extract from a highly regarded ‘conservative’ opinion/analysis site:
Quadrant is uncompromisingly in favour of freedom of thought and expression. While insisting on civilised discourse, it opposes any political, academic or religious tendency that wants to suppress freedom of speech. It does not support diversity for diversity’s sake nor does it mindlessly endorse tolerance of all viewpoints, especially those that do not return the compliment. Rather, it understands tolerance to mean the willingness to listen to unpopular or unorthodox views that are well argued, while in practice taking tolerance to mean the willingness to live and let live, which is so typical of Australian life.
