Okay news sleuths, it’s time to tell the truth! I’m sure we all agree that the media significantly influences our lives. From TV to radio, magazines to newspapers, and social engines on the Internet, we are constantly saturated with stories. With the capability to create “news” at everyone’s fingertips, how do we know when the source is factual, fake or propaganda? Instructors: Annette John-Hall & Christina Rissell
