Dear Riski,
We've all felt silly sharing something on social media only to find out later that it was a hoax. As journalists, though, we have a special responsibility to verify information and debunk rumors.
   Join Craig Silverman, author of the Verification Handbook and Poynter's Regret the Error Blog, in this one-hour Webinar. He will show you ways to cover questionable content, fake news articles and more. You'll also learn the best ways to share your reporting on a rumor without spreading it.
Sign up now for this Jan. 6 fact-checking Webinar, and start the year off with new tips and strategies for dealing with the onslaught of questionable viral content.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE: Bloggers, writers, reporters, editors, teachers and anyone who is interested in going beyond routine fact-checking to learn about how rumors spread and how to debunk them.
   The cost of this Webinar, offered at 2 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Jan. 6, is $29.95.
   Questions? Go to Fact-checking and Debunking: Covering Rumors, Hoaxes and Gossip, read our Webinar FAQ or email us at webinars@newsu.org.

Physician and writer Abigail Zuger asks, "Is health care more effective when patient and doctor are the same...or different? http://ow.ly/x3V36
While patients may prefer doctors like them — in terms of race, gender or weight — it is unclear whether such pairings improve health outcomes.
