How to spot fake news

  • Check out one of the fact checking websites.
  • See if the sources cited are credible.
  • Never read the headlines only, read the whole article.
  • Don’t let your biases affect your judgement.
  • Check the date, maybe the article is a repost of an older article irrelevant to the current events.
  • Be sure it is not a satire, from Onion.com or some similar sites.
  • Check author’s other articles, if they are credible.
