I stumbled across the following clip today. If one is completely naive, this should shatter your innocence.
The bottom line is almost everything one reads, hears or is shown on radio or video can be altered to completely change the intended perspective, change the attitude of the reader, listener or viewer and it’s not really all that difficult.
Proof? Sorry, seldom is there absolute proof that has not undergone rigorous forensic analysis. “I saw it with my own eyes”? Even worse, ten eyewitnesses will have ten different perspectives.
Does this make one a cynic? Perhaps. My suggestion is to view everything with a bit of skepticism. I wrote a paper about five years ago with a quote at the end: question everything.
