re: #165 Sharmuta

It seems fact checking was all the rage when we could use it against the left, but when it comes to fact checking our sources, our side, fact checking is just not so cool anymore.

That’s a good point, but here’s an honest question: How do you “fact check”, when “facts” are morphing by the minute? I’m not talking about blog chatter - I’m talking about the media we’re all supposed to trust to bring us an accurate story? And how do you “fact check” a dishonest media?

I don’t intend this as a challenge to you personally. I just really want to know how we find out the truth in these situations.
