1. An excellent skill an one that becomes secon-nature the more you use it

I do this constantly, if you stay on that video, it will take you to another similar video to check the author.

https://m.

Many websites seldom have an editorial group to flesh out the veracity of their reporting, so that means itís up to us to run down the facts. These techniques scratch the surface of those skills, but they leave us in a better place than simply accepting everything we read as truthful, unbiased reporting. It helps us side-step the screen-of-truth trap, that is, blindly accepting what we read on the net as equally valid reporting, even in the face of contradicting facts.

8. This is necessary stuff

This comes naturally to me (watched the Internet grow up+natural skeptic).
I always do this (even here)
Many people fall into BS and don't check (guess how I know)
It takes time and can be hard, but worth it.
I try to side step my own bias (this is usually the culprit if I get stung)
Even if you like a story, especially if you like it -verify, don't trust.
This should be taught by 3rd grade.
I know people here are savvy, I just think this is too important to not be addressed.
This is a piece of what got us here.
