Is every perspective on a news story equally important?

I believe that not all perspectives are important because if a victim gives you their perspective it would be better than a witness as they would not know what happened or why the issue started.

I do not believe that all perspectives are important as some can be false. Also some peoples opinions could be irrelevant to issue. Therefore I disagree.

One reason I disagree with the fact that all perspectives are of equal value as the information may be from an unreliable source such as a social media page this was the case with a Buddhist student called Aye Myat Mon she got here information of facebook and there were being anti-Rohingya messages were being spread at that point. This is something the student said. “They do not belong in this country and are not our people. This is a fact. They are illegal immigrants and we’re worried they will over run our country.” This shows that some perspectives can be rude and a lie. This shows we have to be sceptical and not believe everything we hear.

A second reason that not all opinions are important is that a victim of the accident could give a bias report and may be exaggerated because the victim may say or do something to benefit them and they might get moved to a new country to give them a better life.

This shows that most perspectives are important as long as they are truthful not exaggerated in any way and not bias.
