Is every perspective on a news story equally important?

I believe that every perspective is not equally important as some may hold a bias view and cannot be trusted. The reason I believe this is because someone`s perspective could be irrelevant or obviously not true and they could be lying or be inaccurate or they could just back someone up for no reason and that is why it is bad to get news from Facebook or social media or any apps like that although the more perspective`s you listen to, your chance of getting an accurate answer will raise.

For example in Myanmar, there is a student called Aye Myat Mon who is a Buddhist in university and she gets anti-Rohingya information from via Facebook were all the Buddhists post bad things about the Rohingya people. I don’t think its fair that her perspective is even important because she got it from an app that people lie and don’t tell the truth and she didn’t experience it in first hand when Kobir Basar (who is a refugee, living in a refugee camp) his perspective is more important because he saw it first hand and said “the military set fire to our houses and were chasing people and killing people. That’s why he had to try and escape, I saw all this with my own eyes.” As Aye Myat Mon (the liar) said, “The Rohingya do not belong in this country and are not our people. This is a fact. They are illegal immigrants and we’re worried they’ll overrun our country”.
