Would you be interested in a live workshop of sorts, where we take on the quality of information wrapped up and sold as news?
It's one thing to point out the existence of fake news, but quite another to form logical, rational, sound arguments to support a position.
The proposal is this...
We step through articles presented as news, and analyze it using metrics that identify the employment of fallacial arguments. We can either take a single article and analyze it to detect whether or not sound logic is being applied, or a fresh article for each logical fallacy we explore.
I really want to do this, but it only works if others participate so...
