Sunday skeptical

People in journalism, in addition to often having a bit of a morbid sense of humor, have a tendency toward skepticism. That skepticism is what leads reporters to dig deeper when a politician tells them something. It leads to loads of fact-checking because some people apparently can’t open their mouths without lying. And it leads to unofficial days like International Skeptics Day, which is celebrated on Oct. 13 … or Jan. 13 (perfect for my birthday) … or the first Friday the 13th of the year.

In honor of this day, don’t take anything for granted. Question everything. And annoy the crap out of habitual liars by fact-checking them vigorously.

You got this. You I don’t doubt. It’s those other guys I don’t trust …

You realize we have a trust issue here, right?

No, you don’t have any eucalyptus, and I’m pretty sure you aren’t interested in anything but me being cute for the camera. Hard pass.
