We seem to be in a new era where truth is no longer objective or even obtainable; Some go so far as to say there is no such thing, just different opinions, all valid. In a field that has long prided itself on finding and presenting evidence, what are investigative reporters to do? How can you combat fake news and help readers and viewers to distinguish among mistakes, propaganda, and real news?  

يبدو أننا في حقبة لم تعد الحقيقة فيها موضوعية، أو حتى في متناول اليد. ويذهب البعض للقول إنه ليس ثمّة حقائق او أي شيء من هذا القبيل، وأنها مجرد آراء مختلفة، وكلها مقبولة. فماذا يفعل الصحفيون الاستقصائيون في حقل غابت فيه الأدلة والحقائق منذ أمد بعيد؟ كيف يمكنك مكافحة الأخبار الملفّقة، ومساعدة القرّاء والمشاهدين على التفريق بين الأخطاء، الدعاية والأخبار الحقيقية غير المزّيفة؟
