Evaluating False News and Misinformation

False News is a type of journalism with the goal to deliberately misinform or spread hoaxes through print, broadcast, and social media. “False news” is not the news you disagree with. There is an intent present to mislead for financial, political, or malicious gain. As the term "fake news" has become politicized, try not to use it in regard to misinformation.

The ability to tell accurate news from false news is an important skill that you'll use your entire life. The Evaluating False News and Misinformation LibGuide will give you valuable insight in telling fact from fiction online.
