wolfennights asked: I like that you take journalism and ethics seriously. Also anon, doing your own research will help you immensely in life. I wasted too much of mine asking other people what my opinions should be rather than figuring them out for myself. :]

Thank you. I do take it very seriously. If anon is in college, a good place to start is the reference librarian. The reference librarians can show you how to cruise databases for articles in academic journals like no other — say, journals of Native American studies. If you’re not in college, and have access, you can do the same at your local library. Also, check out Google Scholar

And you just put it very well — forming your own opinions IS important. Yes, I hope to influence people’s opinions, but not to the point where I’m dumping content into automatons. 

That’s what AM talk radio is for, folks.
