Welcome to ATS.
Be careful not to swing to the complete opposite in rejecting everything MSM, and embracing everything Fringe.
Track down sources, verify them, and do fact checks.
Claims like "Scientists have discovered ... ", "Politicians want to take away ...", need be cross checked.
Which Scientists? What's their names? Who hired them? What Politicians? What's their names? Can a source be found showing them saying what's
claimed as opposed to someone making claim they've said something or done something that can't be corroborated?
Nothing worth having should be expected to come easy.
Don't believe the Hype; whether it's MSM or Fringe.
The fringe will try to tell you what to think just as much as MSM will.
Do your own thinking.
