    OPTION 1Later in this course we will talk about the disruption that social media has brought to the media and our understanding of politics, current affairs, and related events. There are pros and cons associated with the new paradigm of information dissemination...more to come!For now, as noted in my opening note above, the framers of the Constitution were concerned that everyday citizens would not be able to understand or comprehend the makings of our government. They felt that everyday citizens were uninformed and did not care what was going on in our government. Even today we see where citizens are interested in government affairs seemingly only if our country is in turmoil such as unemployment, recessions, civil unrest, etc. Do you agree with this assessment? Are we uninformed? Do we wait till a crisis happens to voice our opinions?Remember, this is a political science class, not a political opinion class. Accordingly, I expect that your posts will be based on objective research, data and analysis, and not mere opinion. References:Greenberg, E. S & Page, B. I. (2018).

      OPTION 2This is certainly a hot topic! Recall back in the day when Dan Rather and Mary Mapes were exposed for faking a deferment order from the National Guard with the purpose of depicting former president George Bush as unfit for the office. A movie was produced about Rather's story and his firing from CBS and many contemporary news articles at that time discussed the advent of "blogs" and "citizen journalists." Based on this, and with the disaggregation of media sources, it is no surprise that many experts see the media as biased and more like infotainment. In fact, many people have turned to social networks as an outlet for news instead of CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN and other news stations. Do you see this as an issue? Do you see the news as biased or unbiased? Should there be more restrictions on the news stations?Remember, this is a political science class, not a political opinion class. Accordingly, I expect that your posts will be based on objective research, data and analysis, and not mere opinion. References:Greenberg, E. S & Page, B. I. (2018).
