News websites, TV news, radio news, and newspapers can all contain both opinion pieces and news stories, but how can you tell the difference? With real-life examples and historical facts, this fascinating book shows readers how to differentiate between these two major sections of any news product and what to keep in mind when reading, listening, or watching. They'll also learn how to pick out those times when the two cross over and how to be discerning when making good judgments about the news they consume.
