        Fact vs. Fiction in the Media | PBS NewsHour

        Sometimes news is labeled as “fake” because the reader dislikes it or it contradicts their beliefs. However, fake news is when the news information as well as the news organization itself may intentionally be completely fabricated. Educators and media literacy advocates are working in the classroom to help students discern fact from fiction in news sources.
