Fake News Exposition and Analysis Speech

Assignment 3 – Fake News Exposition and Analysis Speech with outline and annotated reference page

Identify a “fake news” article from a reputable news agency. Write a one page outline fact checking the article to explain its lack of logic and evidence. Provide a two source annotated bibliography to support your analysis along with a citation for the fake news article. Present the news article to the class then present your critique to the class.


1.) In retrospect, now equipped with a critical capacity to evaluate logic, share a fallacious idea you once held. SHORT AND SIMPLE

2.) Share a time you’ve been a “confident idiot” or “lie witness”

3.) Share a time you “metacognated” outside of the classroom.

4.) What’s a sacrosanct egoism you hold?

5.) Provide an example of purpose driven reasoning; preferably, one you once held.

6.) Is there a cognitive bias you feel particularly susceptible to?

7.)  Share a time you overcame a complex intellectual endeavor

8.) Have you ever succumbed to the fallacy of a single story?

9.) Have you ever been subjected to a single story; how did you negotiate the impertinent interpellation?

10.) Share your experiences of “Blue Collar Brilliance.” Have you ever underestimated another’s aptitude? Has your own aptitude ever been dismissed based on the false associations between occupation and intelligence?


How can schools foster creativity, how might you construct an educational exercise with these values in mind?  5-7 SENTENCES


  1. Robinson defines creativity as the provision of “original ideas that have value.” In the last line of “Blue Collar Brilliance, ” Rose writes, “Affirmation of diverse intelligence is not a retreat to a softhearted definition of the mind.” What do you think Rose and Robinson are pushing back against, what does he mean by “softhearted”? Last class, we talked about creativity as it pertains to children. It was suggested that children are engines of creativity in their ability to create toys out of refuse. While a valid argument, does this actually satisfy Robinson’s definition of creativity? While the newly invented toy or game might have value to the child at play, does this toy or game actually have “value”? How might one define value? Is it determined by the individual or society? How might we distinguish between expressiveness and creativity?
  2. Robinson laments the “benign” but “profoundly mistaken” advice many receive to discourage their artistic passion in deference to the market desires of industrialism. In your experience, did this pervasive capitalist pragmatism suppress a passion or did you find new outlets and times to indulge that creative drive? Hobbies are luxuries of time and resources, but are you able to maintain a particular activity you are passionate about?
