Blur : how to know what's true in the age of information overload / Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel
- How to know what to believe anymore -- We have been here before -- The way of skeptical knowing : the tradecraft of verification -- Completeness : what is here and what is missing? -- Sources : where did this come from? -- Evidence and the journalism of verification -- Assertion, affirmation : where's the evidence? -- How to find what really matters -- What we need from the "next journalism" -- Epilogue : the new way of knowing.
- Like the authors' classic book The Elements of Journalism, Blur is a unique and readable discourse on how the information culture is changing. Just as important, it provides a road map for all citizens to navigate that culture by revealing the tradecraft great journalists have used to sift rumor from fact and access the truth. In an age when the line between citizen and journalist is becoming increasingly blurred, Blur is an indispensable guide.
