Strange times often come with a lot of misinformation. If there is one thing we have learnt about the world with the advent of the digital age, it is that the more you look, the more you will find. Be it knowledge, facts, information or news about anything and everything, the more people talk about it, the diverse the retelling and the stories are. In the midst of a barrage of news from all sides, who is doing a trustworthy job and providing you with correct facts and figures?

That is exactly what has been going on with the COVID-19 pandemic. WhatsApp forwards and different word-of-mouth stories have led to a lot of misinformation regarding the issue, and that could be seriously life-threatening if not paid heed to. So much so, that the Government of India had to appeal to people to not disburse any and every forward that comes their way, and source their news properly. As is a journalist’s responsibility to provide you with proper news, it is also your responsibility to weed out the fake news items.

In the same vein, you also need to choose a reliable, trustworthy, legacy source of news for one of the bigger crises we as a nation are facing; the water crisis.
