Question and answer
• How comfortable are you with the credibility of the information you find on the Internet? For example, consider websites such as dailykos.com, drudgereport.com, huffingtonpost.com, mrc.org, and so
on. What, if anything, makes you comfortable about the credibility of these sources? Why?
Anyone, in theory, can publish on the Web; therefore, it is imperative for users of the Web to develop a critical eye to evaluate the credibility of Internet information. [ Searching for sources on the using a search engine, a directory, or some combination of these two. Because there is so much information on the Web, good and bad, finding what you want is not an exact science and can be time
consuming. According to Nicholas C. Burbules, "....the Web is not an ordinary reference system; it poses some unique and, in many respects, unprecedented conditions that complicate the task of sorting out dependable from undependable information- and even complicates the notion that we have a clear sense of that distinction. How to differentiate credible from fraudulent information is not a new problem, but unraveling these in the context of a vast rapidly changing networked system is" (Paradoxes of the Web: The Ethical Dimensions of Credibility, Library Trends, Wntr 2001 v49 i3 p441, Introduction). Developing a keen sense of the credibility of sources, based on such clues as connection of author to the subject, audience, source of publication, and documentation of supporting evidence, can also help you evaluate print and other types of sources. Though many search engines rank material according to their idea of what is relevant, that doesn't mean the material is relevant to want you want or is reliable. These guidelines are to help you become familiar with various types of Web resources and the reliability of the information. ]

[ [ The movie industry became not only a part of the lives of millions, but it also spawned creative innovation and cinema was established as an industrial and technological process in many countries. Television, in comparison to film, has often been seen as the poorer relation in terms of cultural significance and quality, yet TV continues to influence the daily lives of the millions who watch it. Despite threats from new media and the internet to make film and television redundant forms of entertainment, movies and TV shows still dominate internet content. Without these two media forms the internet would arguably not hold the attention of the audiences it does. In the twenty-first century film and television still hold sway in a range of global media leisure pursuits, enjoyed and celebrated in different kinds of spaces: in the cinema, at home on TV, video recording and DVD sales, and the internet.
