How Journalists Verify Information
Historically journalists have played a central role in shaping public discourse in democracies. And they do this by framing various current events or those that have happened in the past. Journalists can be neutral intermediaries, or they can interpret the facts in such a way that they deviate from the truth. Especially in the age of virtual reality and user-generated content in interaction with audiences, the difference in reporting is made by transparency and the verification of facts.
