Coping with Fake News and Disinformation


A free and robust press is essential in a democracy, but with media outlets sharing sometimes-conflicting information online, on air and in print, it can be difficult to distinguish the real news from the fake. Developing strong news judgment is possible, however, even for young audiences. Readers will learn about the foundations and value of press freedom, be introduced to important investigative reports, get background on historical and recent press controversies, read how easily disinformation can spread, and discover the tools and resources available to help news consumers detect fake news and stop its spread.
