What is Fake News?

The topic has been floating around the past few weeks. Fake news has slowly been overcoming the facts of real news. More and more fake news social media accounts and websites have been put up at an increasing rate. Philip DeFranco has run into many issues when it comes to fake news on his news show. The difference in the news has created some very harsh and tense atmosphere on all social media sites.

Why is This Such a Big Deal?

It’s become such an issue that it has escalated into a big deal. The amount of people out there trying to deflect accurate news and the amount of people believing them is almost crazy. This just shows how much we need to consider what we write and how the public/audience will respond.

In short, do some research before you add to the fake news black hole.

Till next time!
