I’ve got a journalism degree. Yes, we want to listen to sources with a variety of viewpoints, but that in no way means the truth has to be somewhere in the middle.

If someone says rape is bad, and someone else says “actually rape is great,” that doesn’t mean rape is sort of okay.

If someone says the truth, finding someone who disputes that truth doesn’t make the truth un-true.
