Is every perspective on a news story equally important?

One reason I believe this is, people cannot be trusted and can get their news from social media. But on the other hand some people can be trusted and get their news from trusted websites, but if you’re telling your perspective, try to use your scepticism so people can’t say you’re lying or they change their mind, and disagree with you. For example, in Myanmar the Buddhist university student has gathered all her news from Facebook, where all Anti-Rohinga information is spread, plus some news is fake. While Kobir Basar, the Rohinga person, has seen his news first-hand experience.

The second reason I believe this is, some people are rich and powerful, and people would want to hear their opinion, and even agree on it, however, some people are poor and are not powerful and people do not want to hear their perspective, and disagree with their opinion. But we need to use are open mindedness to welcome other points of view. For example in Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi, is powerful and rich and people would want to listen to her opinion, but someone poor and unpowerful like Kobir Basar, no one will want to listen to.

    I think everyone's perspective is important but not all the time because it might be useless or of the task

    I think all perspectives should be heard as they are important and if you can not it will be un-equall and it would be unfair,people will be overlooked and be excluded from things that others know about but they might know bigger.It will also be frustrating as it will be something that you have got information about and enjoyed having to explore and when you come in it feels so incredible,but when you find out you have to be an observer,who only watches, the respect they get must be 0%,it would be embarrassing and completely irritating.
