This session will look at critical analysis of various news sources. We will look at mainstream medias, with a wide variety of agendas and learn how to decipher this information. Come and contribute to our discussion on how to identify the language used by mainstream media and what that means when thinking about political agendas and ideologies. It will also give people practical steps to combat fake news and make their own decisions.
