Highly Recommended

DetectingBullCoverOpenCdA highly recommends this book, Detecting Bull, Second Edition, by John H. McManus, published by The Unvarnished Press.  We in the great state of north Idaho have no news media that provide timely, accurate, or complete coverage of local news.  If readers request the book through our public library system, be sure to emphasize that you’re requesting the Second Edition, not the First Edition.  The Second Edition adds six new features including :

– The SMELL test to help evaluate reliability of information

– Commercial bias, the most common slant in American journalism

– Detecting bias in images – visual literacy

– The misinformation trade – how news is made to fool the public

– Using the web to vet the news

– Evaluating information from bloggers and citizen journalists
