32. I understand...

...I also used to rely on 'news' sources like that.

I go now by this simple rule: If I can detect the author's emotion in the words of the article I don't trust it. Trigger words are words like "stooge", "shill", "warmonger", "commie", "bleeding-heart". Is it yellow journalism?

Edit: Although I did trust Anderson Cooper's emotion when he was listing the names of the Orlando victims. I was choking on tears along with him.
