Fake news or not?

by etienne0330 on February 7, 2018 - 11:07am

I’m going to explain in a simple manner the article I read that is called: Pope Francis vs Donald Trump: Each one has a guide to fake news — and they couldn't be more different. The article talks about, mainly, how pope Francis view Fake news. They compare their point of view, explaining how Donald Trump would just give you examples, Pope Francis would rather give you clue on how to figure out if a news is fake or not. It is more of a how to spot fake news guide.

 

This article was written by a mystery author in the National Post, was written and published the 24th of January 2018. Although it’s an interesting article, I find it hard to take it seriously because it lacks the unbiased approach journalists need to do spread information correctly. Because of this, it is really hard to take it seriously and not question it, they could be saying things that aren’t true, they could be twisting words said by both man, etc. To put it really simply, they could be, in a very ironic fashion, spreading fake news themselves.

Here is a link to the article if you want to make your own opinion on the subject:

This article post was summarized well and was easy to understand the idea of this topic. You included a clear statement of your view of this post in terms of it's credibility. In addition, you included a link to your post. In terms of delivering the basic information which is very important in a summary, you did a good job.
What could be improved is your explanations on the topic. I didn't have a hard time understanding your post and it's theme, but your examples could have been be further elaborated to support your view of it being a "questionable and "bias" article. When you wrote " They compare their point of view, explaining how Donald Trump would just give you examples, Pope Francis would rather give you clue on how to figure out if a news is fake or not", you could have provided examples to show the difference of these two points of views. Also, to solidify your perspective of this article, you could have paired it to another one of a similar discussion about Trump and Pope Francis. I have provided an article of these two political figures to help provide a structure for this post as they share a history that can potentially relate to the article you analyzed.
