Erica Campbell of Mary Mary tweeted a message for Internet users who find themselves too easily influenced by random opinions voiced online. “READ, READ, READ!” she emphatically instructed. “Not just social sites, educate yourselves people! Be better.”
As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see.”
But in a culture where online gossip flourishes, it can be difficult to decipher between a lie and the truth.
Campbell, who claims to enjoy gleaning insights from nontraditional sources wrote, “I love documentaries about truths in this country that never make it to the TV, news, or media.”
Nonfiction motion pictures, which document specific aspects of reality for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record, often contain gems of wisdom the larger public overlooks.
Informative health-related films like “Super Size Me” and “Forks Over Knives,” historical documentaries, and fact-based programming available through more traditional sources like History Channel or Discovery Network, provide solid views and analyses.
