CMC 240 Week 5 Dealing with Informal
Sources Paper

Review “The People Formerly Known as the Audience”
in the Electronic Reserve Readings.

Locate 2 recent news stories about your project
topic. Pay close attention to the comments section and the share function (to
share on social media sites). Consider how the audience both receives and
creates information and also how social media affects the way people receive

Write a 500- to 700-word paper
in which you briefly discuss the effects the online audience can have on a
story’s content, credibility, and trending, particularly as it relates to your
project topic. Address the following questions:

  • How might
    this affect the way you write your story?

  • How is
    quoting informal information from an interview different from quoting
    information from online comments?

  • Why is it
    important to be accurate and attribute sources?

Format your paper consistent
with APA guidelines.
