In a time of information overload and actual fake news, how can one find reliable news and information online? Acquire tools to help you become a more critical consumer of information. We’ll discuss how to recognize different types of information sources (news, entertainment, promotion) and to evaluate the sources of information the media use. We’ll also discuss the effect social media is having on how people get their news and information. The class is taught by a long-time reporter and editor. Martin LaMonica has worked for nearly 30 years as a reporter and editor covering technology, science, and business.
