    Fact checking is an important process in establishing the validity of the articles and enhancing the reputation of the outlet itself. I thank New York Times for being a strong proponent in this field and upholding the values of good journalism. A case that I would like to mention is the Pizzagate scandal. As you may have already known, Pizzagate involved an accusation against Hillary Clinton amongst others as being part of a child sex ring; this scandal caught on like wildfire and the workers and the boss, James Alefantis, of Comet Pizza received a great deal of death threats and attacks. This case is an extreme example of the controversy caused by the lack of fact checking because, as you and your team have dubbed it in your article on November 21st, it involved fake news that was baseless in its claims and exploited pictures of children in various odd positions as “proof” that the pedophilia ring existed. It was later proven false in a Snopes article on December 4th that showed how these pictures were manipulated to serve malicious purposes. The damage that resulted was irreversible. In my lectures, the three facets that are to be upheld when presenting a journalism piece are verification, independence, and accountability. When either of them fails to be present, the piece is no longer qualified to be called journalism. Fact-checking is the linchpin in fulfilling the verification role. The issue that arises is whether the audience is aware whether fact-checking was…

    in the latter part of the essay, act as a crucial pivot and play a central role in this regard. He further resolves the issue of beneficence that effaces as a result. “In Dutch health care, the physician-patient relationship is based upon deliberation and mutual agreement.” Through means of this, Widdershoven arrives at a conclusion that euthanasia, as practiced in the Netherlands, does indeed have a moral ground, transcending the primitive opposition between autonomy and beneficence.…

    Both of the class readings by Carnap and Goldstein discuss what being considered a scientific facts means. Carnap refers to scientific facts as a singular statement that needs to be differentiated from universal laws due to the common misconception. Carnap argues that many people confuse laws with facts and use the term in the wrong sense. An example from Carnap’s writing is the statement that “all ice is cold” this would be considered a universal law because it suggests that any piece of ice at…

    change. The utmost desire here is the cognition (knowing) which the Adlerian and Reality theories places a lot of emphasis on. Both theories believe that without knowing or being aware of what the problem is one cannot be helped. I personally believe and adhere to the fact that to solve a problem it must be identified, this fact the two theories support. Also, I believe in the now. That is, the present for me matters more than anything else as it is a precursor to my tomorrow. The Adlerian…

    reading about business and businessmen to my own life as a student. I’ve chosen two topics that the book covered in terms of business and I will discuss them and give an example of how they apply to my life. The topics are facts and faith, and continual improvement.
