• Fake news has been around since humans began communicating
  • What is different today about fake news is social media – specifically the old saying that a “lie can go halfway around world before the truth can get its boots on” now does so in minutes, or even seconds. 
  • The good news is there’s a lot we can do about it!
    • Check the facts, check the facts, check the facts
    • Before you share slow down
    • Support local news and media so that they have the resources to pursue the truth.  In doing so, we are supporting the foundation of our democracy.
