Announcement: News Report #4

For News Report #4, which is due on 11/6 (Election Day!), you have two options:

1) Do the "usual" assignment OR

2) Blog about fact checking. You can do this any way you want: Find a story about what fact checking is or find several facts you want to check (related to the Presidential campaign specifically) and describe how you went about the process or make a list of some of the facts that one or both candidates got wrong and how you investigated their claims.
Connect fact checking to information literacy. What is the connection? What is the connection between what fact checkers do and what you are learning in LIB 103?
