How to Have More Confidence in Articles You Read
It used to be that when you read an article in a newspaper you could (mostly) count on some standards of journalism, like fact-checking and research. Not so today.
For every article published, there should be a checklist with assumptions about the article and journalism standards explicitly declared by the author. The emphasis is on an explicit declaration by the author and the publisher. If something (fact checking) is not checked on the standard list, you immediately see it.
