Create, March 2017: The Fight Against Fake News
We know the problem: Fake News. It's in our newspapers, on our internet, and in our email inboxes. What to do?
Help us fight misinformation. Write us a Guide Entry:
- Do you know a lot about a subject that's misunderstood today? Tell us about it!
- Do you want to clear up a widely-believed myth? Prepare for controversy! (But we love controversy.)
- Can you chronicle an event in history that was influenced by Fake News? Tell us about the hoaxes of the past, and how they worked out.
Help in the discussion:
- Tell us about your fake news experiences.
- Tell us how you fight rumour, innuendo, and general stupidity in your daily life.
- Host a round table on the subject, and send the results to the h2g2 Post.
- Collect some egregious examples of Fake News. Or make your own up. (Remember to follow the House Rules!)
- Contribute some fact, fiction, or humour on the subject of Fake News.
h2g2: We document our sources. We leave no fact unturned. Help us shed some light on a modern plague!
