The Import of Well-Roundedness
T he image below is a self-explanatory example of why where you get your news matters. It is reminiscent of last week’s post reacting to the SCOTUS ruling on PPACA (or so-called “Obamacare”) and how wrong some of the news media *cough* Fox News, CNN *cough* got it. In this case, it wasn’t a matter of rushing to be the first one to announce an opinion, but rather news outlets were rushing for analysis about President’s new-but-actually-old position on Bush-era tax rates.
This is a reminder to be conscious of what you read, watch, hear, and eventually repeat to others. Feel free to play the guessing game down in the comments. I’ll be curious to see if anyone gets them correct.
