The reporter Christiane Amanpour has said: "We are at peril and at risk if we don't know the difference between truth and lies. Truth and lies are the only thing that separates us from democracy and dictatorship."
So how can you tell when a story is true or false? How can we know whether a photo or video has been doctored? Can we trust what we read in the paper, hear on the radio or podcasts, or see on T.V.? Who is controlling the message that massive media conglomerates pump out every minute of every day? Who is spinning the message?
