Description - The Fake News Phenomenon by Duchess Harris
In recent years, the news media and its function in society have become major topics of conversation and debate. The News Literacy series examines several key issues in modern news and gives readers tips on how to view the media through a more informed and sophisticated lens. Topics include the importance of quality journalism, the encroachment of advertising in traditional news spaces, and how to determine whether sources are credible or are "fake news." The 2016 US presidential election introduced a new term to the media lexicon. The Fake News Phenomenon examines the spread of bogus news sources, the reasons they exist, and the difference between media bias and "fake news." Readers are also provided with tips for how to discern the credibility of a news source. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index.
