A finder’s guide for facts from Morning Edition’s Steve Inskeep

According to NPR’s Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, “Facts have always been hard to separate from falsehoods, and political partisans have always made it harder.”  Instead of being in a post truth era, he thinks it’s better to call this a “post-trust era.” He also encourages questioning what you read and hear. To help, he has published a Finder’s Guide to the Facts – a set of questions to help you decide if a news story seems credible.

And he also offers this advice: “Never stop looking. Learning the truth is not a goal, but a process.” As a news consumer, take the time to ask the questions and always be learning more.
