The Adventures of Chip Tracer, CyberJournalist


This is a light-hearted but effective approach to a serious topic: understanding the way that stories get distorted and how reporting ought to be done. The overall effect is campy but clever, and despite the comic book-like style it does present the issues. It features misreporting of the Wright brothers' first successful flight, and shows how bias could be present in the reporting of the battle of Little Bighorn. The site is relevant because of today's widespread public distrust of the media, and it takes a hard look at journalistic ethics.
