From Just Human:

Today is a REALLY REALLY REALLY good day to first try to UNDERSTAND the news you are seeing rather than REACT to it. 

Why is it news? 

What is the message?

Does it appeal to emotion or logic?

Is this information or hyperbole?

Are there any receipts?

Who benefits?

Who is damaged?

What contradictions are there?

How does it fit into the micro and macro contexts? 

Should this be news at all?

Understanding > Reacting
