Discussion 6: Fake News and Media

It can be challenging to think critically about everything we are reading and  publishing. However,  the repercussions of lazy reading and writing  can be catastrophic.

Read the following articles and then answer the questions below:

* “Fake News Goes Viral: A Case Study‘ by Sapna Maheshwari in  The New York Times

*  “Why Can’t Media Portray the Rural Alaska I Know‘ by Laureli Ivanoff in  The Alaska Dispatch News

*Fake News or Real? by Wynne Davis in  NPR

What is the value of “getting it right’? How do we do this? How do we make sure our sources are accurate? As you respond, draw from Ivanoff as well as earlier authors we’ve read. How do we evaluate and navigate stories and fact?
