How do you evaluate the news you read?
According to the American Library Association, "Misleading information published as news is not new to the 21st century. In the late 19th century we called it ;yellow journalism,' and its practitioners used sensational headlines and outright fraudulent stories to increase sales. Today, with increasing reliance on both digital news outlets and social media for news, sifting through the messages for non-biased sources requires attention, and possibly reviewing multiple sources--including seeking out a reliable original source." (ALA's "Evaluating Information")
