Again I am delighted with the format and readability of this book. Discussing current journalistic topics, like current yellow journalism or fake news, keeps it fresh and pertinent. So many of the books other classes use for study are outdated and deprecated. The simplicity of Knight’s writing makes the topic easier to understand.

Filak makes a good point about social media and that we are too engaged with it to ever let it go. The problem with so much of it is that relying on social media for news goes hand in hand with yellow journalism. Therefore, the two books make a great connection here.
