Information Disorder: How to recognize biased or misleading information in today’s charged media landscape
Do you find yourself questioning whether news you read online is from a quality news source, or instead may be fake, biased, or misleading?
Do you want to learn how to ferret out bad information?
Our reference librarian, Karl Suechting, will show you how! He will teach the following so you can be an informed news consumer:
1. Vet the publisher’s credibility.
2. Pay attention to quality and timeliness.
3. Check the sources and citations.
4. Check with the pros: visit a fact-checking website
5. Be a curious, reflective, active news user
6. Identify your biases
7. Pause before you share news on social media
