Until recently, there was news and “not news” – as denoted by comments of “that’s not news” below the line on more light-hearted stories or features. Now there is “fake news”, said to be behind the election of Donald Trump as US president and a recent incident involving a gunman at a Washington pizzeria.
The term has become widely used – too widely. But it’s understandable there’s confusion when some fake news is only a bit fake, or fake for an arguably legitimate reason (such as satire). Can we still make a useful definition of fake news? And should we even be worried about it at all?
Join host Mike Harris and special guest Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor of VeteransToday.com as they go deep into exposing the reality and myth that is “fake news”
