Stretch and challenge questions require you to read a longer piece of news and give in-depth answers. They're particularly suitable for secondary school students but if you're at primary school and want to also try and rise to the challenge, then give it a go!
This week, a video was edited to make it look like Donald Trump was looking confused at a puddle of water. A fake image also showed a boat with his campaign flag on it. Both had been changed to give a misleading idea of what had happened. It is unclear who made these. Read the full story here.
Joe Biden has also been the victim of altered videotape when a member of Donald Trump's staff posted a video of him that had certain words cut out.
Have a try at answering these questions - remember to give reasons for your answer.
1.What should be the consequences if someone creates edited videos or photographs that create a misleading impression of someone running for president?
2. Should those consequences be any different if the person who made it was:
- a member of the public?
- someone who works for someone trying to get elected?
3. Is someone creating edited and misleading video doing something worse than someone who knows it is fake but still shares it on social media?
