When I talk about the use of social media and user-generated content in education one of the most frequent quests I am asked related to the reliability and quality fo the information. And, yes, social media and user-generated content are unreliable. But my rejoinder is that traditional media are also unreliable, and that this is even more pernicious because people take them to be trustworthy sources. This article is evidence supporting my contention. It is by no means the only evidence, and I would not rate it as particularly trustworthy, since it came from a traditional media survey. But it's at least as accurate as a journal article surveying 23 psychology studentss from a midwestern university.
