Finding Good News
C.J. Casper

So how do we find good news, and how do we get it to people? How do we discredit bad news?

Before we tell other people how to determine how trustworthy a source is, it’s helpful to look at how we do it.

We trust a particular news org because we 1) have extensive experience with it and have found it trustworthy over time and 2) the people we already trust tell us to trust it.

We use the second method frequently, which is why having a good trust network — a good network of people who tell us who to trust — is so important for having an accurate view of the world.
