This is true. History that we know is not what really happened because it is distorted by interests,wrong estimations and time itself. Even current news are not correct in stating what is happening.
Nevertheless, you can get a "sort of" picture by combining lots of sources that you choose for yourself.The choice to rely on edited youtube videos that anyone can upload with complete desregard to anything but his/hers gut feelings or prejudices and without knowing anything about the situation, vs books written by people who at least have some idea what they write about ,even if both sources are eventually lies, will leave you with different baggage.
