It used to be that you could pretty much trust most sources of information, and those you couldn't were obvious.  If Reginald Bosanquet or Angela Rippon read it me from a notepad on the desk in front of them, I believed it.  If Barry at work told me he read it in the "Sun", maybe not so much.

Now, anyone who doesn't line up confirmation before banging on about their favourite source of wrath deserves what they get. I don't think we have lost the ability to engage deeply with facts so much as we have not developed the ability to engage deeply now that we have access to all of them, and everything else too.
