All information is not equal

 All information is not created equal.  I prefer to get my information from the World Wide Web.  Using the World Wide Web is very inconvenient and easier to access for me.  Due to growing technology demands I have multiple ways to access it. The most convenient way is my cellphone.  Unfortunately, you have to still be careful on the accuracy of information obtained.  A lot of the information that is reported may or may not be worthy of our attention. It depends on whose reporting the information.  The only other source that I may pay attention to is the news.  The news is a source that is usually accurate. The only problem with the news is that I rarely get a chance to listen to it unless I am using the World Wide Web to access it.

I can agree that all information is not equal. I would say that we use CNN,FOXNews, and even local news pappers to get good inforamtion. I would say that we use the world wide web for more than reading a book or magazine. In my experience in law enforecment the web would be the most dangerous to use. It can be altered and anyone can put something up. For example ebay you can buy/sell used or new goods form all over the world. You never know if goods are counter fit or if there a hacker. The way you buy off ebay is if the rating are 99.0 and they are insured.
