Choose one source from Group A: CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, NPR, The Guardian
Choose one source from Group B: Fox News, Breitbart, Daily Caller, National Review, The Economist
Choose one source from Group C: Common Dreams, Democracy Now!, The Intercept, Pro Publica, Slate

Discussion Posts Rubric
To receive a passing grade on these posts, you must meet minimum expectations:
Meet the word count for each post topic.
Meet the citation count for each topic
Write about each article listed.
If you do not meet the word count, your grade will be deducted accordingly. If a post is 400 words, and you only write 200, you will receive a 50% on this discussion. If you only write about one article, you will receive 50% on the post (save for one post involves three readings, meaning missing one would result in a one-third grade deduction). Lastly, make sure you meet the word count per topic, not just the word count for the whole post. For example, if you respond to a 400-word post that requires 200 words on each topic and you write 300 words on one subject and only 100 on the other, you will receive a 25% grade deduction.
