Breaking News Consumers' Handbook
NPR show On The Media has created a Breaking News Consumers' Handbook to consult when there is breaking news. Tips include:
- Don't trust anonymous sources.
- Don't trust stories that cite another news outlet as the source of the information.
- Pay attention to the language the media uses.
- “We are getting reports”… could mean anything.
- “We are seeking confirmation”… means they don’t have it.
- “[News outlet] has learned”… means it has a scoop or is going out on limb.
- Look for news outlets close to the incident.
- Compare multiple sources.
- Big news brings out the fakers. And photoshoppers.
- Beware reflexive retweeting. Some of this is on you.
