FAKE NEWS

This page is intended to serve as a complement to the very comprehensive Research Guide CUNY J-School Fact Checking, Verification & Fake News Guide prepared by Barbara Gray, and available on the J-School’s Research Center page.  You will find it a handy resource as you report and research your story assignments this term.

Fake News – How Do We Define It?

Stories presented as news, which have not been produced with the journalistic best practices of fact-checking and verification, and which are false, misleading, satirical, rumor-based, hoaxes, conspiracy theories and/or propaganda.  Driven primarily by the social networks and other websites.

Analyzing and Identifying Fake News  

You are required to employ the same levels of skepticism and best practices that have certified the content of the traditional sources of information you’ve used in your reporting and research to verify and confirm the content you retrieve from social media networks and other web-based products.

Consider the Source

  • Does the story have an attributed byline, and is the writer an authoritative source?
  • Is there an “About Us” link on the site, and does the “Contact Us” link lead to an email address that is other than …@gmail.com or …@hotmail.com?
  • How reliable and trustworthy is the site?  Raise that skeptical red flag, if other reputable sites are not reporting the story.

Can This Site Be Trusted?

  • Be wary of news websites that end in .com.co (e.g. abcnews.com.co) as they are often fake versions of real news sources, and avoid sites that end in lo (e.g. newslo); sites like these are often satirical in nature – mixing accurate and false or misleading information.  Words like .wordpress or blogger appearing in the domain is often a sign that the content is personal, and not a news source.
  • Do a Google search to see whether or how the news is being reported on other legitimate journalism sites.
  • Many sites will hide any personal information used in the registration process.  A WhoIs search on a website will return all the information used to register that site when it was set up.  If a website is younger than it claims to be, (e.g. bostonleader.com), the chances are that it was set up to spread fake news stories.

Is This a Balanced or Biased Story?  

  • Does the story make you angry?  It has probably been designed to tug at your emotional core; remember, fake news preys on our own biases.  Be conscious of your own internal biases, and of the predisposition to lock into/onto stories that support your personal assumptions; confirmation bias is the term used in journalistic parlance.
  • Ask yourself:  does the story only present one side of a debate?  Has it appeared in other familiar and reputable sources?  Does the story include linked cited sources – expert and/or official?Pause, check the story against other reliable sources before you decide to share it.

Keeping Up Appearances

  • Bad web design and use of ALL CAPS can also be a sign that the source you’re looking at should be verified and/or read in conjunction with other sources.  Does the website follow AP Style Guide or another style guide?  Typically, the lack of a style guide may indicate a paucity of editing or fact-checking practices.

Please check out School Library Journal and the Digital Resource Center for more useful tips on analyzing the credibility of sources.

Seeking Solutions

Fact-Checking Sites

Make it part of your best practices to check the facts of the story against respected fact-checking sites, several of which are listed below.  Search individually or collectively via this Fact Checking Sites Search Engine.

Politifact

FactCheck.org

Washington Post Fact Checker

New York Times Fact Checks of the 2016 Election

Snopes.com Fact Check

NPR Politics Factcheck

 

Tech Tips 

Google Chrome Extensions

  • B.S. Detector.  Add this extension to your Google Chrome browser and identify fake news, satire, conspiracy theories, bias, hate groups, and much more.  Adds a red warning label to the top of questionable sites; similar warnings will appear on Facebook when one scrolls over an article on a news feed
  • Fake News Alert will warn readers when they arrive at a website known to produce fake news or hoaxes. The pop-up or banner alerts readers that “the information on this site might be false or misleading.”
  • Add the RealDonaldContext extension to your Google Chrome browser and take advantage of the chance to fact-check Donald Trump’s tweets.  Once the extension is downloaded, it is ready to use. Click on any of Trump’s tweets and the fact checker will appear below it, ready to refute (or validate) any of Trump’s claims and explain why they’re wrong (or right). According to producer, the Washington Post, it’s not perfect, but a good start.
  • Use TinEye and/or a Google Image search to weed out suspicious photos/images.  Purveyors of fake news are well known for using old images to tell new stories, particularly breaking news or stories with a political or social focus.  A reverse image search allows you to find out where an image came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, track its appearance online or to find higher resolution versions.  Google Images and TinEye each have huge databases of pictures; you can either copy and paste an image URL or upload a picture to check for matches. If you use Google Chrome as your web browser, you can even right-click on an image and select “Search Google for image” to look for matches.  TinEye’s useful sorting function allows you to select image by newest/oldest.  Note: ‘oldest’ refers to the first time TinEye found the image on the web, not the first time it appeared on the web.

Fake News Sites

Snopes.com, a fact-checking site, maintains a comprehensive and growing list of fake news outlets.]

Working Website List for Opensources.co:

The below list of websites is a combination of my original list in this google document, numerous other lists on the internet, and suggestions from readers/internet users. All tagged websites have been analyzed by myself or one of the librarians I’m working with on OpenSources. All websites tagged as “unknown”  still need to be analyzed, and some of them may be removed entirely from the resource for various reasons (i.e. it doesn’t circulate “news” or the website no longer exists). Finally, please remember that all tags may be subject to revision based on feedback, discussion, continued analysis, or website changes etc.
