Fake News: How to Spot It

The topic of fake news is as old as the news industry itself—misinformation, hoaxes, propaganda, and satire have long been in existence. This program helps  you determine the kinds of fake news  that exist and provides tools for how to evaluate news for its reliability and truth. This program separates real news from fake news and provides insight for how to be a savvy judge of news. Join Ryan O'Grady from the Maryland State Library Resource Center for this timely discussion.
