Reflexions on the Reliability of Sources

I am writing this because, I felt there are several important and rather complex subjects which affect the way you will handle the information under discussion on this site and which need to be discussed separately in order to avoid making long detours everytime some such subject is current.

1)About citing references to articles etc.
Very often, I find some information, I am willing to beleive or at least willing to cite it, in order to give some weight to some opinion of mine. But there may be other things discussed in such a reference, which I don't approve of, or where I am even suspecting that it may be some kind of deliberate disinformation. Let's assume that the proportion's are about 50-50.
How do I handle that?
It would seem that the most honest thing to do would be, to just skip it in its entirety.
Otherwise it would seem like an arbitrary decision to rely on part of the information, just because it suits my current needs. Normally it would seem to be the right thing to simply skip it. But due to all the secrecy connected with Mind Control and other forms of classified research, there may be unexpected and more legitimate reasons for taking another look at it. To begin with, there may be some disinformation activities going on which deliberately combine truth and lies in such proportions that the source will never gain broad acceptance. and therefore the information contained in the true parts will be tainted. Second the people who want to tell the truth, maybe deliberately tell some untruths, inorder to avoid reprisals that they expect would come if they dug up information that could be used as hard evidence against some powerful parties. Or because they expect that it would be harmful in some other way. This is admittedly just speculation on my part. I am trying to guess at the little secret cultural codes to apply if you are trying to read between the lines in the flow of information - disinformation.
Seeking the unofficial rules for repressive tolerance...if there are any.
