Fake news is spreading across the Internet. What is fake news? Why should you care?
Fake news is the deliberate spread of misinformation in social or traditional news media for the purpose of financial or political gain. Fake news takes all forms - print, online, podcasts, YouTube videos, radio shows, images - any format that can convey information can also convey disinformation.
Because you deserve the truth and need it to make good decisions, you should try hard to recognize fake news and avoid it.
