What should the protocols be when sourcing a story or a personal account?
Maybe it's a bit redundant to ask for these two different protocols for basically the same thing, but I believe that perhaps the difference can add or
subtract details and/or protocols depending on the situation.
When it comes to protocol when sourcing the mainstream media, what do you think would be adequate in regards to your assuredness that the story is
true. Do (or can) you gauge your assuredness and if so by what standardes do you have in measuring this?
When it comes to protocal when it comes to persnal accounts, what do you think would be adequate in regards to your assuredness that the story is
true. Do (or can) you gauge your assuredness and if so by what standards do you have in measuring this?
I'm curious as to how much evidence a person must give in order for others to observe an account as true or false. Does the subject matter or not? If
I do understand that every person's opinion is subjective to their reality (that is to say that what a person experiences determines their reality).
Therefore each will have different ways to measure what truth is and will make a difference in regards to both MSM and personal accounts.
So what is enough to make you believe whether something is true or false and what needs to be included?
