I think I understand this

Back then we didn't have FOX news or MSNBC or even alternative media running 24/7 on demand or the internet. No smart phones. So people found out their news in the weekly or more gatherings of the people. Perhaps the newspaper was expensive in relative to my $12 a month internet. Church has helped and hindered IMO. Even today a friend of mine gets most of his news from church.

Maybe I'm not understanding either of you...

But from what I understand, church from my grandparents to older were the blogs/editorials of today, and today some take these blogs/opining as fact. And a lot of it is just hype from whatever current administration is in place.

I can't think of any unbiased "news" source.

Maybe never in history. Unless you were a witness. Then you know it's "real"
