I’m going to explain to you how I gather political News. Is the source reliable? Is the source have a good reputation. Does this source have ulterior motives? There’s more but these are just a few.
The so-called mainstream media (Corporate Media) in the United States is not News. It’s entertainment. The pundits are accountable for ratings, not News. So-called News pundits will take a News article, take a situation out of contacts, spin it, and call it News. A good news person will be called an investigative journalist. An investigative journalist will look at his story. Do a documentary or a News article on the New story he/she is reporting on. The investigative journalist will have the evidence for the story he/she’s reporting on. The investigative journalist well put the dots together in the story. I’m going to show you two examples.
Pundit: A pundit is a person who offers to mass media their opinion or commentary on a particular subject area most typically political analysis, the social sciences, technology or sport on which they appear to be knowledgeable.
Investigative Journalist: Investigative journalism is a form of journalism in which reporters deeply investigate a single topic of interest, such as serious crimes, political corruption, or corporate wrongdoing.
