in Fact Checking, Tweet O-Rama

Fact Checking People

“Facts are things known that need to be proven. A word of caution my Dad said, ‘Believe none of what you read and only half of what you see.’ Do that, and you get better questions.

The desire of political “camps” is to communicate messages first and facts second. Media advisers and psychologists find the proof of communication in persuasion leading to action. That is it, nothing else. Millions of votes or cans of beer are the proof needed, and ethical communications standards are not required. The friends of the “fact-checking world” help to give writers perspective and the ability to set personal standards.”
