The Thinker's Guide for Conscientious Citizens on How to Detect Media Bias and Propaganda in National and World News
Richard Paul and Linda Elder
Today’s instantaneous and ever-present news stream frequently presents a sensationalized or otherwise distorted view of the world, demanding constant critical engagement on the part of everyday citizens.
Designed to help readers recognize bias in the news; detect ideology, slant, and spin at work; and recognize propaganda when exposed to it, this critical thinking guide empowers readers to make sense of overwhelming and often subjective media. Richard Paul and Linda Elder focus on the internal logic of the news as well as societal influences on the media, while illustrating essential elements of trustworthy journalism.
As part of the Thinker’s Guide Library, this book advances the mission of the Foundation for Critical Thinking to promote fairminded critical societies through cultivating essential intellectual abilities and virtues across every field of study across world.
