2018

Information: The important lesson I learned for 2018 is to always analyze the website (who owns it) the author (who are they) and the history of both to discover where the money is. In addition, Wikipedia is a very manipulated source for information. I use it to get an idea of the manipulations rather than factual information. One thing I found very informative is to click on the history tab of a Wikipedia article. There I can see the contributors and when they posted. Even more interesting is to check out the contributors. I found it very interesting to see an article about climate change edited by someone with no scientific background. We cannot be lazy when it comes to getting accurate information.

This guy edits Hillary Clinton’s Wiki page. – Keeps it clean of anything negative.

News: David Blackmon is an independent energy analyst/consultant based in Mansfield, TX. David has enjoyed a 39-year career in the oil and gas industry, the last 23 years of which were spent in the public policy arena, managing regulatory and legislative issues for various companies, including Burlington Resources, Shell, El Paso Corporation, FTI Consulting and LINN Energy.

So, his article would of course be biased in favor of the oil industry.

“State parks in Arizona allegedly destroyed sacred sites to make way for tourist attractions

Native lawmakers have called for a criminal probe of bulldozed archaeological sites, actions that have led to the suspension of Arizona State Parks Director Sue Black and her top deputy. The state’s Attorney General’s Office has also launched a criminal investigation.”
