“We’re off to fact checking school. This time, John Green is teaching you how to fact check like the pros. We’re going to walk through the steps that professionals follow, including figuring out who is behind the information we read, why they’re sharing that information, and what kind of evidence exists to back up the claim. We’ll also talk about the difference between skepticism and cynicism.”
