Reporters rely on credible sources. It’s what makes the fourth estate work. But what happens when the line between credible news and fake news blurs – as it does now?

A recent study by Pew Research Center on News Use Across Social Media Platforms (2017) shows that the n...

The past month’s events provided no shortage of opinions on what is – or isn’t – free speech. Setting aside the opinions of the President and the NFL, let’s look at what constitutes “free” speech online.

I have tackled the issue of “Like Mindedness” in this space before, but with the events of the last few weeks, we feel it’s important to bring it up again.
