A lot of people think of media or some journalist as beholders of the absolute truth. They take their words for gospel and go on repeating them in all debate.

We need to know of thing, everything and all situations has perspectives. It means that, they debrief games or politics according to their perception of the world and sometimes their own agendas.

So, in spite of their experience or degree of literacy (number of diplomas) their truth is only their truth unless backed by fact, proof or logical explanation.

We need to be tolerant, so we can listen but wise enough, so we can also have our own perception of situations.
