Kelly McBride is a writer, teacher and one of the country's leading voices when it comes to media ethics. She has been on the faculty of the Poynter Institute for 8 years. The world’s largest newsrooms, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, NPR and the BBC, frequently quote her expertise. After getting her bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Missouri, she began her career as a police reporter in the hills of the Idaho Panhandle, covering the meth trade and the white supremacy movement. She got a master's degree in theology from Gonzaga University and gained a national reputation as a religion reporter, covering the moral side of fertility issues, sexual orientation, evolution and the Catholic Church's abuse scandal. She recently traveled to South Africa to teach and research story-telling on the mobile phone. Her current work involves Poynter’s Sense-Making Project, a Ford Foundation project examining the transformation of journalism from a profession for a few to a civic obligation of many, the effects of technology on democracy and the media habits of the millennial generation.

This story predates all the others and is less repetitive. I believe it is credible because it appears to be ahead of the curve.

This article is five years old and it's reaching the same conclusions that the current articles are reaching. Because of that, I think it merits attention. That said, I've never heard of the Economic Policy Institute. Are they well respected?

These authors seem to know what they are talking about. But I'm not sure who they are. I could check their "about page" to get more information. But even then, I've never heard of them. Since they're talking about stuff that is hard for me to grasp, I really have no personal resources to judge the veracity of their conclusions.

It’s easy to get bogged down in arguing whether or not Congress should let the tax cuts expire. But what we’re fact checking is the claim that the tax cuts were the single biggest contributor to our national deficit.
