Title Credibility and Impact Exploring the Internet and Politics Assessment A, Part One - Credibility and Impact: Exploring the Internet and Politics Indicate whether each website is credible. The Drudge Report: not credible Daily Kos: not credible The Huffington Post: not credible POLITICO: not credible Salon: not credible Colbert Nation: not credible The Hill: credible The Nation: credible Red, Green and Blue: not credible Crooks and Liars: not credible The Washington Post: credible The New York Times: credible Assessment A, Part 2: Answer the Senator about Credibility Comment on credibility issues pertaining to using information from Internet sources. There are a lot a sources which I do not believe give credible information for us to use. Assessment B: Writing the Speech Speech Introductory Paragraph The Internet has a major role in reshaping the political landscape, Politicians cannot ignore the Internet, and they must keep up on what is out there. Information on the Internet spreads fast and politicians must remain in the know so that they can react just as fast. We need to remember that the Internet has more than gossip and bad news about politics. The Internet informs and empowers Americans, it allows them to participate in the political process being more involved than ever before. Politicians need to use the Internet not to manipulate or deceive people, but use the many tools available such as e-mail, blogs, twitter or even a podcast to keep the public informed. The Internet has changed politics so much in that things are now being reported at lightning speed and Politicians must keep up and be able to respond quickly to what is happening in the world. Politicians can learn much more from the internet through blogs and other such sites and are able to get the feel of the people faster and easier than the older fashion ways such as town hall meetings and even through face-to face contact. The Internet allows Politicians to reach more people and reach them more often than ever before. It is all about communicating a message, and what better platform for that than using the Internet? With all of the technology now available to Politicians such as e-mail, websites, Twitter, Facebook and everything that is being developed, Politicians must take advantage of all of these resources or they will be considered irrelevant and out of date.

They should be respectful of not only privacy issues but, also any secrecy issues that could in any way be related to our national security. Sites like “wikileaks.org” are to me a disgrace to every reputable media source. They are a type of media that in my opinion show

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
