What does it mean if information is verified
using source omitting expressions such
as “reportedly” or “According to reports”?

If information in news media is not traceable to a specific institution or individual, it is difficult to track its authenticity. It is therefore important to stress the awareness for vague expressions of verification in this age of post truth and to improve overall media literacy.

Matter of Interpretation is an archive that highlights such untraceable expressions
of verification online as a Chrome Extension, analog in the form of news papers and a news broadcast/ film installation.
