Internet Journalism and Fake News (Introducing Issues With Opposing Viewpoints)
Blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Wikipedia...there are endless sources for information on the Internet. But who can you trust to give you the truth? The catch-all of "fake news" has journalists, politicians, and information junkies alike worried about integrity, veracity, and legitimate sourcing. This collection of authoritative but diverse viewpoints tackles what constitutes fake news, where the term originated, and how it is often used to further politicize the media. Readers will also find discussions of propaganda and whether information disseminated by the American government is the only "real" news.
