Fake News – 9

Today we talk about an info-graphic I posted on social media about media bias. I make the point that most of mainstream media is reputable and could lean a bit in one direction or another but do not publish fake news. There are groups of (some) liberals and (more) conservatives who read fake news/extreme fringe biased news. These fringe sites do a major disservice to the world by propagating lies. It’s always good to fact check everything. Verify before reposting. And use a multitude of sources to make sure you are getting multiple viewpoints.

The info-graphic I posted on Facebook:
Fight Fake news. Know who is reputable.
