How do you decide which news counts as "fake"?
It's become a popular critique of the media and journalism so it begs the question as to how people process the media they now popularly call untrue. Have some of you developed a process in which you discover what information is factual and what isn't? Do some of you have spend a lot of time trying to discern the credibility of some sources in order to conclude whether the information is "fake"? Do some of you work off of a hunch?Whatever process you may use, have any of you verified the fidelity of your truth-finding process? For example have any of you mistakenly called some information "fake" only to find out later it was factual? Or do any of you have a way of verifying if your process of finding facts actually produces consistent results? Hopefully some of you have gone through the effort to even double check whether something turned out to be true or not. Otherwise you might look silly.
My biggest fear is that a few people out there may mistakenly label something "fake" without actually knowing how to verify the credibility of their claims. I'm sure that's only a few of you. I trust Americans to be intelligent enough to not be so caviler with the truth.
