Want to know which news sources are trustworthy? We hate to break it to you, but you can’t fully trust any. What you can do is be mindful of things like funding, bias (both the news provider’s and your own) and engage your critical mind by fact-checking a range of sources.
In this episode, Lianne & Corey express the importance of understanding how the media has become interlaced in everyday lives, from background radio and TV noise, to discussions with friends. They encourage awareness of how the media can influence opinions you believe to be your own, and divulge how hidden agendas of advertisers are often spun as breaking news.
Digging deeper, they interview journalist, financial columnist, and podcast host, Chuck Jaffe, to explore the inner workings of the media industry. Using stories from his vast professional experience, Chuck explains how to determine the trustworthiness of news sources, the role of politics, and how social media platforms have changed the way we consume information.
In case you’re wondering, yes, we’re the media too. So, are you going to take our word for it… or listen in and form your own opinion?
