This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — What is our most trusted source of news?

The Council was unable to reach a majority ruling on this issue.

Steve offers this opinion, joined by David and Job:

In a crisis, I turn to the television news networks; for all their faults, they have the resources to report the truth when it counts.


Kaitlin offers this opinion, joined by Tom:

I try to seek out media which support views opposite to mine. That way, I know that the good news I hear is more likely to be true, since it does nothing to help the biased sources’ cause.


Chloe offers this opinion, joined by Erin:

I prefer to listen to the same news story a few times from various sources in order to find the information being repeated. I trust those bits the most. Also, The Onion.


Connie offers this opinion:

Instant crawlers from Fox or CNN. Before they have a chance to spin it too much. I check the newspapers later for details and updates.


Djere offers this opinion:

Vinnie, the shady guy who hangs out down by the dog track. He always picks the winner.


Tom offers this opinion:

Town Crier. Narrow in scope, but close to the source.


Erin offers this opinion:

What I see with my own eyes. In the words of Frank Herbert: don’t count a man dead until you’ve seen his body. And even then, you can make a mistake.


Josh offers this opinion:

If it’s on the Internet, it has to be true.


MC-B and Mike played no part in the determination of this issue.
