Bowlers, is there a single news source that you trust to report the relative truth? What is it & why? Think about this in the context of fact checking claims in the upcoming presidential debates. When CNN says one thing is false and Fox says the same thing is true, who do you go to?

The Guardian is a great newspaper. They are a liberal paper but are always truthful. Indeed, they have been one of the few trusted sources for hugely important leaks such as Edward Snowden’s leaks, and this new Flic book exposing the Paris Police. The BBC is also a good source of straightforward facts and analysis.

I disagree. The incident in question was the subject of many articles over the course of several months. They had many opportunities to correct their errors. The newspaper editors were only interested in sensational accounts that, presumably, drove clicks, ratings and advertising revenue. Their track record is manifestly suspect.

WSJ as main source. When something gets fishy, or I need to grab specific context, I try to cross reference analysis between Reason, the Economist, Democracy Now, the Atlantic, the American Conservative and New Yorker. Anything that mentions China has to be cross referenced through Epoch Times.

I don’t disagree, but I think that’s the inevitable result of removing qualitative color from journalism. Can compensate by sampling from left/right sources, but I prefer starting with a data driven baseline.

Day time Fox News is actually pretty objective. The morning shows and night shows are obviously much more subjective to appeal to their conservative fan base.

BBC & ABC. I watched Fox News for some entertainment after work.

Local stations in general do ok, because their target market is the region. It's the national stuff that's the worst. Although I don't trust any of them completely because emotion and sensationalism sells. Example Texas is going through a huge decline in covid cases and hasn't had any covid deaths this week. That's not reported because it doesn't sell as well as "covid is going to kill everyone".

Thanks C1, that is exactly my point

Reuters, and usually Associated Press. That's it.

Hi, all! I am currently in the process of switching firms. I’m at another big 4 in financial services. My new role has sent out a survey for market team preference between Financial Services and Products & Services (tech, media, telecommunications, consumer markets, etc). In terms of work and exit ops, which would you choose and why? Thank you!

After 3 rounds of interviews (total 4 inc recruiter screen) over the past 5 odd weeks, just got told by a T2 consulting firm that they doesn’t sponsor H1B visas which is frustrating because they were aware of my visa situation right at the start. Sigh 😢. Understand it happens but frustrating nonetheless given the time and effort invested.

Question 1: How is Bain’s in Strategy consulting among other consulting firms in Middle East? Question 2: How would Bain Middle East compare to Monitor India? Question 3: How does experience in Middle East offices differ? Would experience in Dubai office be vastly different from experience in Doha/Riyadh?

Made a project plan based on a previous merger they provided and changed the names to match the current merger. Scheduled meetings on a weekly basis. Took notes in meetings. Never spoke to client. Played video games the rest of the time. Apparently I'm the best consultant ever according the client feedback to ppmd. They also recommended me for promotion to manager for "being extremely diligent and hardworking". Why can't projects/clients like these be the ones that get multiple phases?!!
