Welcome to FAKE News World

One of the more popular new phrases the past year and especially since the 2016 U.S. Presidential election is “fake news”. We are still learning what fake news is, its origins and its implications.

Let’s take a look at what is FAKE, in an effort to know what is REAL. Stay tuned.
