We hear a lot these days about fake news. We hear so much about it that it’s getting hard to know what the true news is.
Fake news ranges from satire or parody, which is intended to be funny, to misleading news, to totally false fabricated news designed to deceive. Fake news has exploded with the increase in social media where false stories can spread to millions of people.
It seems like fake news is a new phenomenon, but it’s been around for a long time. Actually, it’s been around from the beginning of the world.
