Mixing opinions with facts

There is no such thing as an unbiased opinion. There are facts that are unbiased. Like the laws of physics for instance. But opinion?

Opinion comes from the perspective of where we stand. Yet, we try to sell opinion as fact all the time by window dressing it as impartial. Because no one would buy a newspaper that says, “Well, we tried to be as fair and balanced as possible.”

As a result we often state something as fact that isn’t actually true.

Teens are still learning this: How you feel isn’t the same as what is actually happening.
