I am curious. How come people believe the newspapers, everything they say? Every day I read articles posted here. And I think, theres got to be more to the story. Because, I know from my internship at a newspaper, newspapers really only print one side. A lot of the time they are lazy and just get the "easy"story. Or they are printing the "drama side". Not nessicarily posting the truth. Just entertainment. I've actually seen 4 retractions in the past week from my local paper due to not getting both sides. They are just reporting for reader numbers.
So Im just curious. Do you auto believe the newspaper? Or do you think of what the other side could be?

No, I don't automatically believe any source. All sources are questionable to a point. What makes you think that people only believe strictly what they read in the newspaper? Do most people even get the newspaper anymore? I don't. I read news online from a variety of sources and try to take each with a grain of salt.

A lot of times people use a source like a newspaper story as the basis for their question here. This section is meant for discussion. By all means, if you want possible other scenarios to a story then feel free to ask it. On some debates other posters will research to find articles that have conflicting information as what was provided in the original post.
