Discussion questions_Rheingold_Wedge

1. In the first paragraph Rheingold mentions how easy it is to search something on a search engine and having the answer within seconds. He goes on to state that detecting "crap" is now more important than ever. Do you believe this is true and if so, then how?
2. Has the Internet became useless as a reliable source already or can it still be a reliable source like Rheingold mentions?
3. What are some of the tools that you all use when evaluating or investigating sources? Tools are more powerful today, but many people don't know about them. Is there any way to educate the people more about these tools?
5. Can Twitter really be a reliable source for journalism? (other social media as well)
