About Course

Have you noticed how the news media often posts suspiciously slanted expert opinions? “Experts say that sticking paper straws up your nose and making walrus noises is twice as funny as plastic straws.”

That is because being qualified as an “expert” often requires adopting the values of increasingly partisan gatekeepers. See, Duarte, J.L., Crawford, J.T., Stern, C., Haidt, J., Jussim, L. and Tetlock, P.E. (2015) ‘Political diversity will improve social psychological science’, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 38. doi: 10.1017/S0140525X14000430

Now you can become a WGS Certified Online Safety Expert by taking the Winning Growth Systems, LLC Online Safety Expert Certification Course.

Then, when some legacy, outdated news source like the AP uses the Argumentum Ad Verecundiam — appeal to (vague unnamed) authority — logical fallacy to push a thinly-veiled opinion piece, you can respond with “I’m an expert, and you are wrong.”
