Source criticism in six simple steps

  1. Who is telling you this?
  2. How do they know this?
  3. Do the person have anything to win on you believing this?
  4. Given #1, #2 och #3, is it possible the person is wrong?
  5. If the answer to #4 is yes, find another unrelated source
  6. Repeat until #4 is about as likely as a pink unicorn dancing samba behind your back.
Until the process is finished, assume bullshit
