I used to follow some news and news related blogs on here via unofficial bots and Twitter mirrors. (There are still some I haven't unfollowed yet). It's an okay way to do things, but not in line with what I want to do here. Newsboat works better for those needs.

Oh, hey, I just found out you can turn off image cropping in the Mastodon settings! That's much better!

On confirmation bias: There's a big difference between information that differs from your beliefs and opinion that differs from your beliefs. You should always seek information that conflicts with your views, but opinion is something else. It's pre-interpreted information. It has to be deconstructed for the actual information it contains. (Also, information is not fact. It has to be evaluated based on its merits.)
