• No, I don't think so but the poison of identifying all truth as subjective and/or subverted by the free press is dangerous. The free press is not perfect but generally makes an effort to keep the public informed of things like self serving politicians. Those politicians are attempting to identify the free press as the enemy of the people. If they are successful they are allowed to make their own truth. Critical thinking is about finding the truth in spite of cries of fake news and "alternative facts" and to question information even if it doesn't favor doesn't favor one's own agenda.
