    I feel that your question is relative. It depends on the context. I echo your closing statement, “Ultimately, it is our job as digital citizens to recognize how images impact our lives, and to think critically before sharing the narratives they present with our social networks.”

      Hi Raven,

      I think you’re absolutely right! Context is everything. There are certainly news sources or public figures that I trust more than others to provide reliable information and visuals. At the end of the day, I’ve realized that the act of engaging critically with media (regardless of source or medium) has been an invaluable way to fact check, and to develop my own analytical skills.
