Professional skepticism is the act of approaching all information with a skeptical mindset.

Professional Skepticism is the attitude which involves nurturing a questioning mind and being alert to circumstances that may indicate possible misstatement and/or lead to misunderstanding due to error or intentional fraud. It also entails a critical assessment of evidence upon which an assumption, opinion, or  conclusion is based.

I will take on this attitude in relation to any and all media that I interact with, with the intention of provoking those who would incite fear and mistrust through media and by refuting that which I believe falsely interprets a given situation.

Yeah, academia because a thorough education requires questioning and challenging of factual information in an effort to discern the absolute truth surrounding any issue.
