WHAT IS TRUE? WHO DO YOU TRUST? In a time of “alternative facts”, “fake news”, predatory “scientific” journals, the ever-growing entanglement of science and corporate interest, and an overwhelming bombardment of information from the internet and social media, such questions are becoming harder and harder to answer. Justifiably, the frustrated citizen has grown ever more confused and skeptical of scientific knowledge, and which “experts” to trust. We seek an answer to the question of how we can know what is true, and why an answer to this question is essential to bridging the ever-expanding chasms that divide American identity today.
