This coursebook is developed as a Self-Study Training Guide and will serve to assist you in preparing for the News Content Verification - Methods, Tools & Techniques Certification of Subject Proficiency Exam.

Often for research work, the News or News Stories and online published News Articles are perceived to be of less information value compared to books or research papers and professional journals. Mainly because they are more reliable and considered peer-reviewed, vetted information source. Up to a certain degree, this is true; however, in comparison, the News has unique qualities that make them stand out. For instance, when we are to research events or incidents within a certain date the news and its archives can serve as a primary source of information about historical and current events. And, because newspapers also contain commentaries, opinions or retrospective articles about events, they can also serve as a secondary source of information.

The book is a comprehensive instructional text with examples, citations of cases and case laws application in real life cases. The book has practice exam questions and answers that will prepare students for the certification exam.

Please note: Passing of this course will earn you a credit for the CIRS examination module 7, in case you choose to prepare for CIRS Certification exam.

This Module has two (2) units
