Fake News, Propaganda, and Misinformation: Learning to Critically Evaluate Media Sources.

"Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts." --Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Newsweek, 25 August 1986, p. 27.

Workshop Exercise: Evaluate a News Article

The Exercise: Your job is to fact-check the content, evaluate the author's background in the subject they write about, and determine the journalistic standards, values, ethics, or guidelines used by the source. Can you find a standard of commitment to journalistic integrity in these news sources?
