The importance of a critical press

I am a strong supporter of an independent and critical press, and happy that we once again have one after nearly a decade. Hopefully it will now learn self criticism.

I hope so, too.

Do you have a specific news organization you trust?

I tend to trust TYT, Intercept, a bit of Vice, Raw Story. Favorite talking head is Jimmy Dore.

Your choices are quite left leaning, which will most likely further enhance your world view. 

I'm in Norway, so I most likely read quite a bit of different stuff than you do. As for the international media, I consume Economist (the whole magazine, religiously every week), Foreign Policy, Foreign Affairs, and National Interest. 

I used to block r/The_Donald on Reddit, but I've unblocked it recently as it makes for a better balance. There is a law of politics that states that one should never distrust the good intentions of the opposition, and with that in mind I attempt to try to understand what is happening.

Agreed, Arcus. We must understand our brothers' goal or we could not know to help or hinder.
