Truth Be Told

How do Americans discern truth from fiction in this era of fake news?

By now, any American who doesn’t have their head in the sand should have lost any faith they ever had in the news media as the 4th estate of government, the de facto examiner and investigator of government.

One survey reveals 95% of those Americans polled are “troubled by fake news.” How can Americans find the truth when, according to a Pew Research Center study:

69% say the federal government withholds important information from the public
61% say the news media ignores important stories
58% of adults are not confident people can hold civil conversations with those who have different views
57% are not confident people will cast informed votes in elections
