What is this?
What do I mean by "truth-value of print media?" Well, it is not an application of formal logic into journalism. What I mean by this is that it's an evaluation of a given article on total factual relevance and fairness. Although unknown variables make this impossible to know, the internet allows for a number of reactionary variables that may get us very close to knowing. And so, I believe this can generate a relative value, and with a big enough archive, we may turn to predictability.
In essence, Things Relevant is for reporting on reporting, and for delving into journalism and information theory (not the mathematical kind) and philosophy.
*This is an addendum to the original description. This is a never-ending work in progress, and the expression may never match the intention. As of now, the site has specific areas and should and can only be considered some sort of media review. Time-permitting, I want to expand into theory and philosophy and application of truth evaluation, and probably most importantly, mapping out journalism and the "flow of information." But the first part of the construction phase consists of simply re-establishing an archive of articles from past attempts at this idea because the stand-alone trove, in my mind, is invaluable.
Below, the magazine covers are links to everything I review, the vast majority just being articles I pass along as worthwhile and important reads. The goal is one per day, because who has time for more? Each entry added will be at the top-left corner.
