Current Issues: Fake News

A resource guide for current issues topics.

What is Fake News?

Fake news are online stories that appear to be factual but are not.  They may appear in websites that appear to be legitimate, although often they are at websites with little or no real news.  Unfortunately, sometimes fake news stories are picked up by legitimate media outlets and appear on their websites.  This guide offers some resources for identifying fake news stories.
