you shouldnt beileve everything you hear or see, unless you can prove it, or its its a fact. Where it exisit. But it could exisit without you knowing. You could have not know out its exsistence and it still could exisit. In this video she thinks that everything the internet says is right when it has no support or proof. So she can't prove it actually exsist bevause the internet has no proof. But then again it could because we don't really know everything that exsist.

Everything you hear and read is not true especially stuff you read on the internet. The only time you should trust something you read on the internet is if you have a credible source and that the information can be proven by more than one source.

Mr. Alarcon

Nice point Jake. I like what you said about mutliple sources. The more sources you have that confirm a piece of information, the more likely that piece of information reflects the truth. Good job.

This video with no doubt shows that the internet is not always true. Something you find on the internet is only true if its is a fact or can be proven. This video proves that not everything is true on the internet because her date was definitely not from France and was not a model. Overall this was a video that proves the Internet is not always true.

You can't trust everything on Internet sources these days. That lady got a "French model" date through a website( probably a dating website). But guess what? About 33% of the people on dating website are already married... That's pretty ironic isn't it? And I just used that as one of my evidences, hahahaha... Back to the point, you can't trust the Internet, kids. The Internet can be VERY evil, and just be careful about where you get your sources from.

This commercial sums up what we learned today. Which was something cannot be true only if it is proven or a fact. The internet has it's good and bad sides. Straight facts are a bad one. You cannot believe everything you see or here just because it is the internet. If it is made or done, it is a fact. This commercial was funny though, and really showed what some people in this world think about the internet.

This "everything you hear on the internet is not true" has to do with what we learned today in class.we learned that objective means there is solid proof and you can't argue it out of existence. But subjective means you cant prove it like the guy was a french model.

Mr. Alarcon
11/28/2012 6:44am

I like your use of quotation marks to quote the video. I also like your explanation of the term objective.

After watching this commercial today in class, it brought up an excellent point about certain internet sites. You shoudl always definitely think twice about what you look at or even post on the internet, mostly because it never goes away. A lot of websites we see have many un-true facts (for example in the commercial).

Mr. Alarcon
11/28/2012 6:45am

Can a fact be untrue?

Lyndsey Neal
11/27/2012 6:56pm

This commercial shows that this woman is believing a source that is unreliable. Anyone can post anything that they want on the intertent, even if it is false. This woman is believing that this "model" exsists. Even thought the man is alive, her belief that he is a model is inaccurate and a false observation.

Rachel Kosmos ELA8.2
11/27/2012 6:57pm

In the commercial, I think he is in a "state of disbelief" because he can't believe she thinks everything on the internet is true. If he wanted to persuade her the app is real, which it is, he may have to find some reliable sources and show her the app. It is a fact the app is real therefore it would be objective. The moral of the commercial is to not believe everything you read on the internet.

Mr. Alarcon
11/28/2012 6:49am

I like how you are very precise about the facts: objects or events. The app is a thing that cannot be argued out of existence--an objcetive fact. Great job!

Cameron Fearon ELA8.2

This has commercial has basically summed up what we learned in class! It shows that the only way to prove that anything is real you have to back it up with facts!!! So after watching that commercial, I think that I know when I post something on the Internet I should think twice about it! Unless i cannot prove a fact on what I post, then I probably shouldn't post it !

The internet is an awesome place to find news, research,stay in touch with friends and so on. But lots of the information is wrong. People can make fake people as well as post incorrect information. All they need is an internet capable device and an account for that website, then they can post all they want.

Elizabeth Sheats
11/28/2012 5:53am

The commercial states not to believe everything you see on the Internet. I would advise not to relieve unless you can prove it or it seems provable. I would use more than one source. I would use newspapers , books, many different websites that will help you determine wether it is a true fact or real thing.

11/28/2012 6:09am

The idea that anything you here on the internet is true is incorrect. The woman in the commercial left with a guy who said he was a french model but clearly wasn't. If she did not believe that the internet couldn't lie then she would have known he wasn't a french model. Believing everything you here is dangerous and gets you know where. Most people would have have used there judgment and common sense, but because she listen to what the internet told her she will go through life with the wrong facts.

Nothing you see on the internet is exactly true.Even the truth can be something that they heard of from another person. But some stuff on the internet could be true, but you will have to make sure it is true.

Not only did this video or commercial tell me that the State Farm Pocket Agent app was very helpful, but it also reminded me that not everything on the internet is exactly true. this also shows that you need to check twice about whether the source you are usind is accurate.

Can They put Anything on the Internet That Is't True?

I think people can put anything in the internet that is an opinon or a rumor or rarely an fact. We do not know if it is true unless we were present in that event. So that makes the fact/opinion subjective because it is not solid prof Obejective. You can live life without knowing the truth until you finally expiriance that event. Its media madness. You have just expirianced it by watching this commercial.

I thought that this video was very true about the fact that you cannot always trust what you hear on the internet. This connects with our lesson in class by how some things are facts and some are not

Olivia Clarke ELA.3
11/28/2012 2:06pm

This video is a perfect example of what we learned in class today about objective facts, subjective facts, indirect evidence, and direct evidence. The statement " they can't put anything on the internet that is not true" is completely false. Just like in the handout we read in class, the commercial is based on subjective facts and indirect evidence. The women in the commercial thought that everything on the internet was true, so she believed her date was a french model. That is an subjective fact and it has indirect evidence. This is because the fact can be disputable and she doesn't have direct evidence to back it up since she wasn't there to witness it. In order to find out if that claim is true, she needs to look at his ethos (credentials, character, and credibility).

I Think That This Viseo Is A Very Good Example Of What We Learned In Class Today . You Shouldnt Believe Everything If You Cannot See It Or Prove It . Tge Woman In The Video Thought That The Guy That She Was Meeting Was Someone Else , But Comes To Find Out , She Wasnt Very Luck .

This video helped me understand that not all of your sources are accurate. But, you should still use as many nessecary resources as possible. Maybe even ask an informative person that you know for help or information. Not that you should never trust the internet, but ALWAYS double-check your outcome and keep your suspicions up.

Mr Alarcon most things on the internet isn`t true. What the woman is not a concrete fact. In the paper it says "that a fact can nasty if it is ingnored". She will be bite back at the fact how not only the internet lies but also how her date is not a french.

John Nguyen ELA 8.3
11/28/2012 4:24pm

Her date says he is a French model. The internet is not always true and full of facts. It was indirect evidence that he was a French model and she believes the internet is always true. That is a subjective fact.

Josiah Brai ELA8.3
11/28/2012 4:26pm

This video basically means that some facts are not accurate especially indirect information. An example of this would be like Wikipedia. Everyone can post information whether they be a P.H.D or a frivolous student. On that same token some facts can be believable if they are given from a person with high credibility like Mr. Alarcon or Dr. Mahmoud Youssef Shawarbi from the Autobiography of Malcolm X. All of the credentials that Malcolm listed for Dr. Shawarbi made you believe everything that he said.

Jennifer Ramos ELA8.3
11/28/2012 4:36pm

This video helped me understand more about direct and indirect evidence. That people should believe what people say. That you have to trust more on direct evidence that you experience than in indirect evidence because you won't know if someone is telling the truth.

Elle Loeffler ELA8.3
11/28/2012 4:38pm

This video helps me understand more about what we learned today! You cant believe everything you hear or say! and the internet is not a trust worthy place. Unless you can prove it with facts and events then it is true but things you may read or hear mabey false. So in this video the lady believed that everything on the internet is true,which again is false and then told the man that its wasnt but he was smart and remeber mabey that someone told him that it is not.

Jack Ferguson ELA 8.3
11/28/2012 4:45pm

In class today we watched a very interesting video that was related to what we are learning about. Everything you hear about is not true especially on the internet. There are True (objective) facts and there are false statements. This video is telling us that most things you hear from the internet are false or indirect. The bottom line is we need to fact check everything we read on the internet.

Wyatt Williams ELA8.3
11/28/2012 4:59pm

This video is a perfect example of what the world is like today. Just because you read something on google doesn't mean that it is a fact, unless you have other facts and events to prove it. The video clearly is trying to say that some things on the internet aren't completely true. It is almost saying that if you read something on the internet then you should double check it.

Gabriella Vuicich ELA8.3
11/28/2012 5:52pm

This is something like we just learned today. She thinks that everything you read is true, but it's not. You don't know exactly if it's true unless you feel it, see it, etc. So, she thought since that person said that he was that type of person, means he is but that isn't true which is what we learned today in class. This commercial shows that you can say anything on the internet that people will believe that easily.

Natalie Neal ELA8.3
11/28/2012 5:57pm

This video makes a statement that not everything you hear in general is true, ecpecially on the Internet. The woman in the commerical says that she found all of her information online, but really most of it is false. This relates to class because we are talking about direct and indirect observations and the woman is making an indirect observation because he found it from a source with information that has probably been recycled to make a new fact.

Majeste Hansberry
11/28/2012 6:09pm

After viewing the State Farm commercial I now see that they are trying to open the eyes of some ignorant people. As you teach us in ELA we must have a claim to have a argument and we must have facts to support the claim and if our argument consists of those things it will unbeatable.

11/28/2012 6:37pm

one part of the video that really interest me is the part when the lady says "they cant put anything in the internet that isn't true". I researched to find that you could put anything on the internet that is NOT true. for example: you could have a fake identity on the internet and trick other people into thinking that your a different person. exactly like at the last part of the video when her so called "french model" is clearly not a model by his appearence.

Sarah Holt ELA8.3
11/28/2012 7:05pm

When I watched this video, I noticed that the woman said how "they can't put anything on the internet that isn't true," which she found on the internet in the first place. That is and indirect fact because she can't see it, touch it, and it can not be proven unless there are many more credible sources that say so. It would be a direct fact if there were many credible sources that did say that, and even then it isn't 100% true because there is not really anyway to prove it to begin with.

Brandon Peña ELA8.3
11/28/2012 7:12pm

After viewing the video in class, I see that not just the lady but many people believe a lot of the things on the Internet. To have reliable information from the Internet you should check many website too see if they have alike or different facts. If you see many websites with the same information it probably true. The Internet has true and false information.

I think this commerical is a great example of direct and indirect facts. This commerical really shows how you cant believe everything that is on the internet.Facts that u see on the internet arent always true. You should always make sure you have evidence that supports the fact you have. There are also many opinions that people post on the internet that arent facts. This commerical explains very well what indirect and direct evidence!

Davis Baker ELA 8.3

This commercial shows that you can't just believe everything you hear especially on the Internet, you actually have to have direct evidence so that its not debatable this commercial really relates to what we are doing in class and now I feel like I know it better

Victor Navarrete ELA 8.3
11/29/2012 5:49am

The commercial is saying that you can't believe everything you hear or see from other people or the internet unless you have evidence and/or a reliable source and relates with what I did in class with direct facts and indirect facts

Dylan Bala
11/29/2012 7:17am

In this video yesterday I learned that you shouldn't always believe what you see on the Internet. You need to have evidence because you need a primary source which isn't always the Internet
