A very interesting article about fake news and the use of “fake” photos in the conflict going on in Myanmar. We recommend all of you to read it – it’s only five minutes of your time!
During our classes, we will try to focus on something that is going on right now. This week, we have chosen to look at the floods in Texas and how this might be related to global warming and the events in Charlottesville, Virgina, and how what happened there (white supremacists demonstrating) has been called fake news. Choose one of these issues and write a blog entry where you comment on the article you read: Charlotteville – fake news or Texas floods- climate change. How did it make you feel? What did you learn from it? What would you like to find out more about? Do you agree with the points made in the article? Why/why not?
Finish your blog entry by next class.
