Week 6: Topic 1
- Where do you get your local news? Newspapers? Friends? Facebook? Word of mouth? Explain, citing your sources of news. How important is local news to your daily life? How do you know the news you are using is accurate and credible?
- Many publications, both local and national, now have paywalls/online subscriptions to support their business and reporting operations. Do you subscribe to any online news sources? How much do you pay? Why is it worth it to you? Or discuss why you aren’t willing to pay.
- On a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being “most informed”), how confident are you that you are well informed about current events (e.g. pending legislation, actions by your elected representatives, general community information, new movies, sports) and what’s going on in your community and society? How important is it to you to be well informed? Cite some examples.
