A friend relays a news story or a bit of juicy gossip with you. The story sounds preposterous, and then you realize where the information came from. You tell your friend, "consider the source"--meaning that particular website, blog, news organization, or person lacks credibility. Because of the source, the story is not likely true. Now, let's consider this phrase from the opposite point of view. According to TWR-Malawi's Victor Kaonga, "In Malawi, radio is a very reliable source of information. ... People believe what they hear on radio." So, when the people of Malawi "consider the source," if that source is radio, particularly TWR, they can trust what they hear.
