You did good.
Most people just read the title and move on believing what it says.
That’s how fake news spread.
And this is fake news.
With the current surge of fake news and clickbaits, it’s important to always look deeper into an issue. Especially with controversial topics, take some time to fact check and analyse; look for different sides of the story.
1. Go and read the whole article (especially if the title seems sensational) – make sure it’s not clickbait
2. Check for sources, their credability and potential bias – make sure it’s factual
3. Look for other articles with differing views on the topic – make sure to get the whole story
The internet is the perfect place to get informed, but only if used right.
