Fake News – Librarians Know The Truth

The Spread of Fake News

Fake news is made up of entirely fake stories presented as credible journalism, news stories with misleading headlines, or satire. Real news focuses on accurate, fair and thorough information. Sensationalized headlines and made up information can lead to the spread of inaccurate information and outlandish rumors – and, in the digital age, that spread happens quickly. Fake news publishers are often motivated by money and the manipulation of real life events, like elections.

The Librarian’s Role

As you work toward your Master of Management in Library and Information Science Online, it’s more important than ever to understand the epidemic spread of inaccurate information and help others detect fake news. Indeed, only 39% of Americans are very confident that they can detect fake news. In the infographic below, see how librarians can play a role in educating the public and therefore help stop the spread of fake news:
