First you need to understand what kind of content you are perceiving and what is a purpose for that. Are you looking at news article, opinion post, advertisement, comment or something else? Find out who produced this content and what is his purposes of doing that? For example, if it’s news article created by journalists, it should be true, because the job of journalist is to provide true information to the audience. If you are looking at personal post, it is probably true, but saturated with emotions and it is nonobjective. If its advertisement it might not be true, because the aim of commercial is to show something from better side and hide all the disadvantages. In short, knowing what exactly you are perceiving is important in understanding weather it is true.

And also there can be opposite situation – someone without specific knowledge in certain field must somehow know more than others. So sometimes only thing you can relay on is your own intuition.

 

In short, reliable information usually have references on reliable sources such as news agencies, interviews, researches, etc., and it is independent. If there is no the interested parties on the provided information itself, it should be true. Otherwise there is little chance that information is reliable.
