Bix wrote:Yes, but the problem is if you rely on a limited amount of talk radio (or any news medium) for accuracy, sticking with one or two of your favorites, then you need to realize that you can and might be being deceived by them on occasion.
Bix wrote:If I didn't know any better and I relied strictly on Rush Limbaugh, I'd have thought that you need to take a birth control pill each time you have sex... and despite that recent upheaval in the news, there ARE people that still believe that!
Bix wrote:(And, yes, I'm still pissed off that for some twisted reason, morons think that the birth control = promiscuity and therefore you're a slut by default, even if (like me) you've never had sex. Ignorance at its finest, I swear. )
Bix wrote:That's the danger in relying on certain sources of information, too. A person on television or on the radio gives an air of legitimacy to things that they might not know diddly-squat about, but people believe them just because they're "on the air." Therefore, there's no reason to question or double-check what they're saying!

Bix wrote:but it's only ONE step in learning about the issues that he brings up. He quotes people and adds on his own view to those quotes, and it's important to learn who those people are, what sources he's quoting from, what context that quote was taken in, and how it applies to the conversation at hand and the topic in general... or doesn't. More knowledge is essential to making that decision.
Bix wrote:On the "authority" level, someone could try to discredit Dwight's qualifications for speaking to an audience by saying, "Oh, but he's 'just' an actor who does cartoon voices, right?"...but if you know anything about the man, you know that he's had a lifelong interest in conservative politics and is a walking computer of information on a variety of subjects. Personally, I'd put his years of layman's education up against some four-year political science student in a heartbeat.
