This is so very sad. The mainstream media is not perfect, but what's the alternative? How do I evaluate the validity and bias of what's on the web, or argue with the alternative facts thrown at me in discussions with people I once believed to be reasonable? Recently, a longtime neighbour and friend scoffed at me for wearing a mask when I came to his door and asked if I get my information from fake news like CBC and CTV. I asked if he got his misinformation from Rebel and Breitbart. He slammed the door in my face. His wife made him call me to apologize, but we haven't spoken again in months. In the past, we at least all saw the same thing and could debate the facts from there, but now we all have completely different information, so how do we even start an intelligent or respectful conversation?
And my daughter is considering Journalism next year???
