      the thing is, not everyone agrees on who is reliable and who is not

        is our ability to work productively with ambiguity.  For people who need everything to fit into boxes, there are plenty of unscrupulous folks more than willing to create those boxes for you - toward their own ends.  It's a lot harder to control people who can deal with information on its own terms.

      Piecing together clues from lots of sources. Different people can't help themselves about letting different aspects slip. A plausible picture of that part of reality begins to form-up. It does take practice and a wide-ranging, active mind though.
