Description

What is fake news? How can the news be wrong? How do we know if what we're reading is true or not?

The concept of fake news and the media as a whole is discussed as part of the What's the Issue series. What's the Issue asks ‘what’s all the fuss about?’ It reviews what is at stake when we think about fake news, with the aim of helping young people to understand this difficult subject and provide them with the tools to inform their own opinions on the issue.
