Need a recommendation for what to read?
There is so much misinformation on the Internet today that it is hard to know what to believe. Much of the information is opinion that can fall into the category of "lies, damned lies, and statistics." One way to assess whether what you are reading is true is to consult "fact checking" websites. For example, one well known "fact checker" is PolitiFact. But every "judge" has a bias and you need to be aware of it. There is a website dedicated to critiquing PolitiFact's conclusions. It is human nature to agree with opinions that agree with our own values. The key is to read opinions opposed to your own and constantly challenge your own beliefs. Unfortunately, most people do not have, or take, the time to do this given the firehose of information the Internet spews out today.
