Supporting Your Ideas
There has been a lot of talk about this concept of “fake news.” This has a lot to do with making sure that we, as consumers of information, carefully evaluate sources before determining their worth. It is your task to find a piece of “fake” or misleading news and share it with us. Then, you should find 1–2 credible sources that support why it is fake. You should provide the source(s) for us at the end of this discussion in APA format.
You should then discuss your upcoming speech topic for your Person of Interest Speech. Tell us about the sources you chose to use and how you evaluated their credibility. How do these sources contribute to support your speech? How does the support you chose to create an audience connect with your topic? You should also cite these sources for us at the end of this discussion in APA format.
What is the overall danger of people not carefully analyzing and evaluating sources?
