Hi Ray

Really your now posting articles using late night TV shows as sources. Yeah those are credible sources? Ha ha

You (may?) find this usable in trying to build up some credibility on the GV? []

Quote from the source.."Finding sources for research is important, but using unreliable sources will hurt your credibility and make your arguments seem less powerful. It is important to be able to identify which sources are credible. This ability requires an understanding of depth, objectivity, currency, authority, and purpose.
Whether or not your source is peer-reviewed, it is still a good idea to evaluate it based on these five

Now I don't believe contributions to the GV need to be academic quality but using these guidelines will help some on the GV reach more accurate conclusions as to what are and aren't reliable sources. Most of the sources used by the demos,lefterals and leftist aren't reliable. Some are down right propaganda sources for specific political agendas.

The article you presented can be seen as just entertainment but it can also be viewed as low level propaganda meant to support false narratives,allegations and negative stories for political purposes.

Depth, objectivity, authority and purpose, would in my opinion, be the 4 areas one should consider when sourcing the media which is the main source for most threads on the GV. Providing sources which when checked later as to providing the most truth of events should be considered the better source or those sources which provided the lesser truth. Omission is one of the primary tools in the poorer quality media sources.

Ones opinions are only as good as the sources used towards formulating these opinions
