Another take on critical thinking

Good morning!

You are not immune to propaganda!

Your ‘side’ is not immune to spreading propaganda!

When you read things about social/political/whatever issues, step back and ask yourself: what does the reporting source want? What do they want me to think? What do they stand to gain by having me believe them? What kinds of counterpoints or alternate interpretations could there be? (And going 'only idiots/bigots/etc. would object’ and stopping is lazy, disingenuous, and drenched in Kool-Aid – dig deeper.)
