    Facts or Opinions

    A fact is beyond dispute but an opinion is someone’s view, and it isn't guaranteed to be true. An essential skill for reading news articles is to differentiate between a fact, and the case when it seems that someone tries to provide an opinion as fact.

    Not sure if a story is true? Cross-check a story with another (news)source, the more sources you can find for a story, the better. Check if the story is factual and PR-free.
    Fast-check: Copy the headline of the story into a search-engine like Google or Yahoo!, and look at the results. The more references from trusted sources you will find, the more it is possible the story is true. If only dubious sources show up, the story is most likely not true.

    Credibility of Media Outlets and News Sources

    Credibility of the Media

    Below there are a variety of statistical charts related to the credibility of media outlets and news sources.

    But keep in mind: "Essentially, all models are wrong, but some are useful." (George Box; statistician)

    Lets have a look at this chart of Statista, an online statistics, market research, and business intelligence portal, which provides access to data from market and opinion research institutions:

    America's most trusted news channels.

    Statista description: "This chart shows the percentage of Americans saying they trust the following news coverage the most."

    One may get the impression, that Fox News is the most trusted news network in the US, but if you look at the original source, the Quinnipiac University National Poll, it states that:

    "FOX News offers the most trusted network and cable news coverage, 29 percent of American voters say, when asked to compare the major TV news outlets in a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.
    But when network news is examined on a case-by-case basis, FOX drops in the ratings". FOX News is definitely the Republican choice as 58 percent of GOP voters say they trust FOX the most, while 13 percent turn to CNN, with 7 percent each for NBC and CBS, 5 percent for ABC and 2 percent for MSNBC. Only 3 percent of Democrats trust FOX the most, with 32 percent for CNN, 15 percent for NBC, 14 percent each for CBS and MSNBC and 8 percent for ABC" [5]
    The poll was conducted in March 2015, almost 2 years before Donald Trump assumed office.
