Public Forum Debate

2018-19 Resolved:  Broadcast journalism is doing more good than harm. 

The intent of this proposition is to foster debate on the current issues surrounding the broadcast of news, including, but not limited to, fake news, news bias, the public’s right to know, misuse of information, journalism, blogs, credible vs non-credible sources, facts vs. opinions, news bubbles, social media as news sources, journalistic ethics, etc. As with all of the CCofSE propositions, we expect debaters to avoid the presentation of sensational or graphic news stories as evidence.
