Answer the following questions:

— What is fake news? If you don’t know, go look it up.

– What is your immediate reaction to these articles? What stood out to you?

– Do you agree/disagree with “America losing its mind?”

– Do you think the term “fake news” is accurate? Why or why not. What word would you use in its place?

– Should Facebook or other sites be held to a journalistic standard? What standard do you think that should be? Should people be held to a standard?

Discuss what is going on with Facebook in the WIRED article.

– Should truth be up for debate?

– Use Rodman’s Chapter 2: Media Impact, as well!

– And anything else you want to add here… go for it.

Word Count: 500-1500 (or more) words.

As a helpful hint: Participation in the class helps your grade. I’d like to see more of you contributing to the discussions.
