  • Who knew Mark Twain could read the future? LOL It's very, very true for today - I never read our local paper anymore - heck you can read it online after noon for free. I get all of my news from various sources.

  • Even though this quote was written a long time ago, it's STILL holds truth in it!! It's almost impossible to read, watch, or listen to something without it being biased.

  • If you read A newspaper then you are likely misinformed. You need to look at multiple sources to find out the facts and figure out the truth for yourself.

  • Mark was a newspaper man too. He must have known what he was talking about.
