We have heard that the Russians keep trying to change the outcome of our elections by posting inaccurate information in Facebook, Instagram etc… to get people to change their vote. The President claims that there is ‘fake news’ everywhere’. Do some research and give your thoughts on all of this. Do you believe what you see on facebook, instagram, snapchat twitter, or in the news? If not where do you go to see what is happening in the world? Has technology made it easier for all of the mis-information? Are there any mechanisms in place to ‘route out the fake news’? How do we know real from fake news?
