The DNC recently published and promoted “Recommendations for Combating Online Disinformation” and I decided to give it the Reliability Ranking treatment. I understand this is a bit like reliability “Inception”, but what the hell! Right Variety is new and I can take these…
Rating the reliability of popular, current and breaking news stories.
Breaking news or highlighting inaccuracies? We are taught how to read but not how to think. I would not suggest the well meaning journalist exploits this fault. I would say the propagandist certainly does.
What is reliability? It is a quality. The quality of being trustworthy.
Is today’s news trustworthy? Sometimes. Is it consistently so? Not a chance.
