Wikipedia founder creates ‘factual’ news site

| 1 Comment

Entrepreneur Jimmy Wales has launched Wikitribune, a collaboration between journalists and citizens that will put facts first. But in the age of fake news, can facts really change our minds? – The Day

As ever, I highly recommend reading The Day’s excellent, and balanced, overview of the key issues relating to this experiment in citizen journalism, and society’s much lamented disregard for evidence.

So, peeps, when you want to know the facts of a subject, where do you look first? Do you ask yourself, ‘How reliable is that source?’ Is there even such a thing as objective truth?
