FAKE NEWS, BAD NEWS, ALTERNATIVE FACTS AND THE PROBLEM OF DEFINITION

What is Fake News? 

 

The definition of "Fake News" and its current application by many is actually quite problematic. 

 

However, instead of trying to provide a definitive definition of the term (we have yet to find a dictionary or encyclopedia beyond Wikipedia that has defined/included the phrase), the goal of this guide is to provide links to resources that will help put the current state of news in context, including the serious and real-world consequences bad, fake or biased news/information can have on our lives. Additionally, this guide seeks to provide the reader with tools for accessing and evaluating the news encounter regardless of format or outlet.
