We the Media 8 - 10

"Among the missing components in this hierarchy is a way to evaluate a person's reputation beyond the crude system in place today" (171).

To evaluate a person's blog, or online journal, we must remember that we may be reading the work of an amateur. And even if the person has journalistic credentials, we must still be careful. Just because one may have credentials, one still have bias.

One must even exercise this caution in reading news in the papers. The over all lesson is just be careful and decipher facts from fictions.
