  1. Your outro music author, the one who was a bit harsh about your authoritarian guest, sorry says:

    Gentlemen, thank you so much for your podcast. It would be really valuable to know your take on the opinion piece published in New York Times recently:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/18/opinion/fake-news-media-attention.html

    The subtitle of the piece is “Critical thinking, as we’re taught to do it, isn’t helping in the fight against misinformation.”. To my understanding the piece argues against critical thinking and in favour of authority bias, but I might be wrong. Could you please look into this.

    I think it is important for many reasons, one of them being – if this is the editorial stance on NYT, and NYT being one of the preferred “reliable sources” of Wikipedia, how should we approach Wikipedia from now and can we consider NYT an unbiased source, or what it seems to me after this piece – a clickbait-y activist newspaper advocating for irrational compliance?

      Forgive me if this topic has already been discussed, I have not been up to speed with the podcast episodes for a few months now
