Companies pay google huge amounts of money to have their sites pop up in the first 2 pages. so really you're not gonna get an honest source until you reach the 4th or 5th page and even then that's questionable. So really you have to go to the library, and no one goes to the library anymore, we're all dependent on google
    I am aware of that, you can position yourself in browsers if you pay money, just like with any commercial. But it's not only way you position yourself on google. You can be on page one, if you have readable content, hits and well optimized website for search engines. You can even learn to do that yourself. It's doable.

    I found this very website via google search. I doubt it owners paid loads of cash to be on the first page of google search.
    Is it an honest source? I kinda of depends wheter you guys create good content without hidden agenda

    Any can put up content on the web so it's up to you to judge it's honesty. Usually you can tell wheter someone is expressing their views or try to sell you something. Good point about reading books though. But books or even scientific publications may also hold a bias, remember that.

    I thing I found interesting watching pro-US media and Russia Today(watching events like Iraq qar/Syria war), is that often they are both telling the truth. But only a fraction of it, making your vision of the big picture skewed, it's also something to remember. Sometimes they are imo purposfully emitting rumours or not verified infromantion only because they fit their agenda(for example use of chemical weapons by Syrian Military - "a fact" which i am very skeptical about).

    Most sources/people on the web are not media outlets/companies/ngos.

    I am not above media influence, I am above brainwashing I am not willing to accept overheard convictions without scrutiny.

    some people are indeed smart, so they are right thinking that

    Additionally same could apply to your statement. You think you are right, yet you may be and in my opinion are wrong.

    I didn't say some people weren't smart. I said everyone thinks they're smart which not everyone is smart, therefore some of them must be stupid.

    Agreed, and I agree some people are influenced to the degree they are brainwashed. Title suggest however that everyone is, a notion I find little evidence to agree with. I agree everyone is influenced, brainwashed no.
