Is every perspective on a news story equally important?

I believe Kabir Basar is telling the truth because he has experienced it from his own eyes. For example in Myanmar, you might want to listen to someone who is more important than a person who is on the street. Kobir Basar’s family were in the fire and he hasn’t seen them till this day. So why is Kobir Basar’s opinion equal to a university student who reads her news online, which can sometimes be a lie. Sometimes social media can spread rumours and she doesn’t know if it is true herself and she is spreading rumours.
