I didn't make any assumptions. However, if you can't trust one source (like CNN), what allows you to trust the source or sources you choose to use? It's an honest question. What makes one source trustworthy and one source not and how do you decide? How are you evaluating these sources? Unless you've seen an event with your own eyes, you are putting a certain amount of trust in whoever is reporting to you. How do you decide who to trust?
