Be skeptical of everything you see, hear, or read
Satire can include fake news that makes fun of the news.
Some fake news is not satire, however.
Some fake news is intentionally misleading.
Some "real" news is unintentionally misleading.
Incorrect or misleading news
slips into the social media stream
and people usually cannot distinguish
the "fake" news from the "real" news.
Always evaluate the author and source.
Check sources for accuracy.
Don't forward until you fact-check
