I think you are just, winding yourself up. Considering and knowing the opinions of those with opposing views is one thing and important. But dedicating too much time, will become an obsession and only give you grey hairs. Do you watch the Arabic channels? Or Chinese news?Just addressing one of your points, CMDR: I regularly watch/read media outlets, as many as I have time for on any given day, who's viewpoints are diametrically opposed to my own. I'd go so far as to say I watch/read them a great deal more than outlets with which I'm more aligned with morally or philosophically. I consider it of great importance to consider the other point(s) of view on any given issue.
