How to Resist Fake News

Reminders when you're reading news articles or considering news sources:
1. If it shows up on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter, that doesn't mean it is true.
2. Consider the source. Is it a reputable news source? Do they have a reputation as being liberal or conservative? Do they have a reputation for checking their facts?
