Take it with a grain of salt.
If you 'take something with a grain of salt,' it means that you consider the source while deciding if something is true or not.
-Sara didn't like the movie. She said it was awful.
-yeah, but you have to take everything she says with a grain of salt. She doesn't like most movies.
-The newspaper said the economy is sinking.
-It could be true, but you have to take it with a grain of salt. That newspaper isn't very reliable.
