Seeking Truth Together:  Cultivating Reliable Interpretive Communities

The challenge of reading or listening to news these days is deciding whom to believe. Which “studies” do we rely on to make informed consumer choices when most studies are industry-funded? Do we listen at all to network news, knowing that six corporations control 90% of media outlets? Every time a public servant is exposed for lying, cheating, embezzling, or inside trading we have more reason to be skeptical of powerful people in high places who make policy and seek our support during expensive PAC funded campaigns.
