Recently I had the distinct pleasure of being a guest on The Tonya Hall Radio show.
Our topic was journalism and how reporting of information has changed over the decades, especially with the advent of the internet, social media, mobile devices with instant push notifications, etc.
Does the “consuming consumer” take the time to validate information presented to them, or does a perceived reputable source serve as our only validation that what is being reported is indeed accurate?
Also who owns that responsibility of fact checking? Is it the consumer, the journalist? Both?
I've linked the show below – check it out. It was an honor to spend some time with Tonya. She is an inspiration to many of us for her professionalism, work ethic and mentorship.
