  • Websites and bloggers have a responsibility to double check their news sources, even if they are getting information from a news site.

    Websites and bloggers have a responsibility to double check their news sources, even if they are getting information from a news site. Things hit the social media sites minutes after something happens and I think that more people should be aware and double check these things before they go and post them.

  • Website and bloggers should always double check their sources

    In today's internet heavy society, people tend to believe everything they read without truly asking if it is credible. All websites and bloggers should be responsible for their content and take the time to double check that the information they are sharing is in fact true to the best of their ability.

  • Bloggers do have a responsibility to check their sources

    Of course, some bloggers do not care, as it gins up traffic for their website. Any responsible person would want to make sure their information they are putting out is accurate, even if it comes from the news itself. The news is not always right, and the biggest problem with the news is they like to rush stories. We all know why they do that. It would behoove bloggers to get as much information as possible before they post these type of stories.

  • People Should Check

    I believe people should check their news sources even if they think they are getting information from a news site. People are too quick to post and propagate false information on the Internet so they can be the first person to report it. Don't assume things are the way an article states they are unless you've checked a few sources. There are many biased articles out there on all topics.
