Developing the truth of a situation is about hearing different points of view and understanding where they come from.
The good thing about this show is that it does discuss the different points of view. The All Star panel is typically mostly conservative with one liberal but all different points of view are discussed. The conservatives refute the liberal points of view and the liberals refute the conservatives'.
The great thing about this is that you hear the different sides. Too often news programs are mostly sound bites with someone crafting them to a certain point of view. It may not occur to you to even consider different aspects because you don't know they exist. But if you get people arguing about a topic you can at least know those aspects exist and then go off and try to develop what you think the truth is.
This is becoming more philosophy than a review of the show but my philosophy is why I like the show.
