Don’t “Like” This Video: How We Can Save Journalism By Slowing Down.

How and what we read and “like” and share is as much a matter of ethics as is our support of local businesses, our spiritual or religious practice, or our public service.

Sherlock Holmes on truth, facts, and (probably) saving journalism:

“Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.”

“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.”

“It’s our job to see whatever is, no matter how unlikely, instead of creating a supposition and finding the facts to suit. Share the facts and views, based on the facts.”

“I never guess. It is a shocking habit, destructive to the logical faculty.”


Relephant bonus:

A decent breakdown of all things real and fake news.
