http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170125/news/170129345/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “We’re asking you to put on your Sherlock Holmes hats and investigate,” said presenter and Teen Librarian Alice Son. “Constantly play the devil’s advocate.” One evaluation method — which had an acronym that amused the crowd — was the CRAAP Test. It stands for currency, relevance, authority, accuracy and purpose — things a reader should consider. “There is a bias for certain sources, so consider both sides,” Son said. The presentation included discussions on reading news on social media and asking people to place different media outlets on a “political bias spectrum.” They encouraged people to read and evaluate articles before instantly sharing them online; to read stories on both side of the spectrum or something that challenges their opinions; to regularly clear the cookies from their internet browsers to prevent the same types of stories from showing up; and to fact-check information at credible websites like Snopes.com, Politifact.com and FactCheck.org. “It’s sad that libraries, and various other institutions, have to teach people how to protect themselves,” said attendee Ralph Blasko of Arlington Heights. “We are all being manipulated every day … we have to be wary of everything.” The library will host another presentation on the topic March 23, and similar events are being planned at other libraries around the suburbs.)

http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/25/media-matters-is-building-a-creepy-database-on-white-house-journos/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Media Matters asked for help building a “comprehensive” database of reporters who “get to ask” questions at the White House Wednesday, sending a series of bizarre tweets in which the heads of various journalists are circled in red ink. “[Media Matters] is going to try to maintain a comprehensive database of who gets to ask questions at press briefings,” senior fellow Matthew Gertz tweeted. “We need your help to ID some!” Gertz then began tweeting out image after image of reporters asking questions in the White House briefing room, describing the question asked in each one and asking followers to identify the reporter. Each one’s head is circled in red ink. “Who is this?” he tweeted, along with one of the photos. “On Monday he asked about the Women’s March on Washington and the March for Life.” . . .White House press secretary Sean Spicer has switched up the pecking order in the first few briefings, opting to give outlets such as The New York Post and Christian Broadcasting Network an opportunity to ask questions, in addition to the more traditionally favored networks and wires.)
