In our cultural moment, a great deal of our attention (perhaps the majority) is spent fixated on the headlines produced by a 24-hour news cycle. As access to, and the ability to share, information has dramatically increased, a prevailing skepticism has emerged. And the underlying question is this: How do we know which news to trust?
