"But I guess also he relies & what people tell him & I guess his "sentiments" tell him what to follow & to believe, true??!"

Good journalists tend to cross check and present facts verifiable with a number of sources. They present researchable facts as a basis for their opinions, which means even if disengaged from their own sentiments, the facts will speak for themselves. So it's not so much about who to follow and believe.
