Yeah... I'm gonna be THAT person , the parent probably supports President Trump who endorses FOX news and hates CNN for fake news ... get a life if I were a teacher I wouldn't want my student getting information from people like Nancy Grace and biased networks. Man just watch any comedic news station they're more honest than the actual media. Thank you Jon Stewart for always being honest !
The better assignment would be to have the students watch multiple networks and find the points on which they're all aligned. Each seems to have certain pieces of the "truth."
Bloomberg👍 I care about the stocks I own and the ones I may potentionally own. I dont care about some random black dood idk that got punched by a white officer across the country in Oregon where I'll never visit.(CNN and Fox)
Fox News was recently taken off of the airwaves in the UK, in part because it's just such hack propaganda (and yet 50% of the US gets their news from it). Studies show that watching Fox News makes people LESS informed.
So, television is now an acceptable source for research information??? They can access print media on their phones. Why would they be allowed to use sources that can't be reviewed?
i'd tell students not to use tv at all. not to use alternative media either. i'd tell them to burn their text books too. and then i'd tell them to get the hell out of the classroom and go learn real life.
8 years ago my son had a teacher in 9th grade (different Somerset County school district) that also refused Fox News as a source for current events. When asked to confirm the statement at BTS night the teacher said it was in order to have the students see the view of other news sources not just the one the majority of the class admittedly already followed.
FOX is more biased and less informative than any other of the networks. It's the only one that deserves to be called out separately. It makes perfect sense.
As well I know people that work at NJ101.5 and they are quoted in the article. So ummWhat part was the joke? Why are they referencing real people? Why did they link NJ101.5 in a April foolsJokes article? Took me 1 minute to scan it and see it
Now that you know where this teacher leans because it became part of her class, any kid that does use the source will probably be given lower grades or critiqued more. Can never win.
