Truth or Propaganda?
One interesting way to explore the concept of
truth in our society is to choose a specific topic or event and use the internet to
investigate how various groups and individuals deal with it. What is the truth?
What, if any, is the relevant difference between truth and propaganda? If someone strives to believe only the objective
truth, supported by facts and evidence, what should they do? Where should they look for news? Use these
Web links to explore these questions.
- Explore how various news resources (mainstream, right-wing,
left-wing, etc.) evaluate a recent political debate or speech. Is there an objective view of the truth?
- The internet also allows you easy access to international
perspectives on current events. Find
English language reports from various countries and compare the way they discuss some
important headline. For the most interesting
study, choose sources that are the most likely to disagree (China, Russia, U.S.A, India,
Mexico, France, etc.)
