It is hard to debate with Norman. He believes that truth can never really be known. Or at least that is what I surmise from our conversations. Truth is a matter of a particular perspective on a problem, which of course is different according to said perspective. Such people as hold this point of view ‘agree to disagree’, which is a way of denying, not only whatever assertions you propose, but, in a lot of cases, denying reality as well. Whatever argument is put forward, Norman says ‘you’re entitled to your opinion’.
We talked of the schism of ideological and political perspective between mainstream news sources and alternative sources, each painting a different picture of the world (the alternative sources painting several). The picture that’s true is the one you believe is true, would say my friend. Truth is relative. And the reading and watching of alternative versus MSN sources only serve to reinforce whatever you already believe. In that equation, MSN is just as valid as alternative news, which often contradicts it. This is a very nihilistic attitude for Norman to take. In it, your reality cannot be informed by anything new. It can only be reinforced with more of the same.
The fact is that not all interpretations of the reality of the world we live in are equal. The MSN perspective is downright deceptive and, for that reason alone, inferior to alternative news. Alternative news, of course, can be deceptive as well, but in the main, alternative media focuses on revealing what MSN tends to hide or distort. To the degree that it does this, it is far superior to MSN.
Perhaps truth cannot actually be known, as Norman seems to assert. But some interpretations of truth get closer to the ideal than others. Sources that deceive and propagandize are the least likely to reveal objective truth. And that is what MSN does. It is, in my view, not to be trusted. That’s axiom one.
