The really only credible source is: The actual words and actions of the subject in question.
Source dismissal is a game. If the quote from the person in question is reported from Fox news, say... the apologist can dismiss the facts with the
wave of a "Fox Lies!" hand.
The facts such as verbatim quote, are unimportant.
How this sort of thing can be gotten away with, may be due to the reliability in which leftists cite wildly fantastic nonsense from radical fringe
sources, that are immediately denounced by sensible folks.
This has the effect of opening the door to summary denouncement of all sources, credible and not.
Web sites such as Newsbusters painstakingly chronicles the laughable agenda driven bias, quite often at the cost of facts and reality, advanced by the
so called mainstream media.
The advantage of a compliant media refusing to recognise & report on certain inconvenient events has the benefit of the ability to denounce any news
outlet that reports an event unflattering to a particular agenda.
The apologist can then say, see? No one else is reporting that! It can't be credible!
Stick to your guns, rely on actual, in context quotes, recorded and documented actions and consequences. Its been my long experience that leftists
tend to be unimpressed by, and reject facts. This is likely to preserve a useful ignorance.
Remember; it's not about the facts, it's the narrative that's most important to folks of a particular persuasion. So don't bang your head against
a brick wall.
