    From a friend, this seems important now more then ever.

    " One of the key concepts of film school
    is the idea of suspending your disbelief.

    This is what’s strived for in entertainment by creators,
    to allow you an escape where you enter into the fantasy
    presented as though it’s real for a time.

    For students of film making and theory,
    it’s like breathing to ask who’s telling this story,
    what they have to gain from it,
    and how it may influence perception
    of the world and move culture if taken as true.

    From feedback over the years,
    many people would find it a bummer
    to apply this as rigorously to your sources
    of entertainment.

    But it is highly advised that all of us apply
    this to purported sources of factual information
    to avoid being manipulated.

    Can you tell when an article or video is meant to persuade?

    Do you notice when there’s verifiable evidence
    presented versus authoritative opinions that sound convincing?

    Can you see when correlation is said to be causation?

    Do you know who financially benefits
    from you believing certain information?"
