Fake News, Acronyms, and Evaluating Online Information
Fake News, Acronyms, and Evaluating Online Information. A couple of days ago the morning coffee group in Bowbells were arguing about whether Dolly Parton had died or not. Someone had seen an online news article about it. I can’t even count the times my wife has shown me Facebook “news” posts about Clint Eastwood dying. During the heavy snowstorm in October I saw a “Breaking News” article about a major traffic accident with multiple vehicles and injuries on Highway 5 in Ward County. I thought “If this just happened we might be getting an ambulance page”. I clicked on the link and discovered that it was something that happened in British Columbia several years ago. These “news” events are fairly easy to search for and validate or invalidate.
