Publisher's Summary

In Debating Fake News: A Guide with Critical Thinking Strategies on How to Extract the Truth from Fake News and Alternative Facts in the Media, you will learn:

  • What is propaganda? It's no secret that we are often being sold things, by advertising companies, and now by the news. How did propaganda start? What was the history of it? How can we learn how to spot it and protect ourselves?
  • Modern forms of it: Although propaganda has been around for a long time, its form has shifted. Although it is similar now to how it was, there are some key differences to be aware of. Chapter three will cover this in detail.
  • Clickbait and fake news: It seems as though a lot of news on the Internet these days is just "clickbait", designed to make people read but without much substance. How can you decipher reality from these sources? This book will tell you.
  • Who owns the media? Did you know that there are not very many mega-corporations that own most of the media? Once you are aware of who they are, perhaps their lies will become easier to spot.
  • How to tell truth from lies: How can you tell that a news article you're reading is legitimate? Chapters six and seven will give you detailed instructions on looking at news sources with critical thinking tactics, so you don't get fooled.

Everyone out there has an agenda when it comes to the news. In order to make sure you are getting as much truth as possible, these topics are crucial to learn about.

Very well written...clear

This is an outstanding book on critical thinking and applying statistics to everyday life. I think this should be required reading for high school students. It would be interesting if our culture was more encouraging of critical thinking, rather than believing everything we hear in the news or social media.
