While Fake News is not a new phonomenon, its prevalance in an increasingly globalised world has become a concern for many people who wish to sift for facts. It has become more important than ever to properly and thoroughly question what you read and hear in your day to day life. As a result of applying more critical thought to what is heard in newspapers, social media or even trusted sources like government websites, a person can develop the ability to see through nonsense, deliberately misleading information or even flat out lies. Engaging in Academic studies, with their emphasis on finding and referencing reputable sources to bolster an argument, is an excellent way to sharpen the ability to see through something like fake news.
Academia specifically relates to the work done in educational establishments, such as schools, colleges, and universities. It involves work which revolves around studying and reasoning, not practical or technical skills. Academic Writing and Critical Thinking has always been crucial in the discussion of ideas, thought processes and reasoned argument. It is vital for university and in the workplace, when creating Technical Reports, Business Proposals and Business Projections etc. In short, the ability to write in an academic fashion and to think in a critical way, contributes to education, business and government.
