Recently outgoing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein delivered this speech to a university audience. Like many of Rosenstein’s prior speeches highlighted on these pages, the speech was a pleasure to read for its general advice.
For instance, Rosenstein stated: “Today, you are relentlessly bombarded with information, much of it of unknown reliability. The internet lets people share their most ignorant thoughts. Many news stories rely on anonymous sources, without providing details to assess their credibility and bias. Some critics worry that our society will be unable to distinguish fact from opinion, and truth from fiction.”
