Who? What? Why?: What Is Fake News?, Hardback Book

Who? What? Why?: What Is Fake News? Hardback

Part of the Who? What? Why? series

Hardback

Description

The term 'fake news' may be relatively new, but the idea of presenting false information as a legitimate news story in an attempt to influence public opinion certainly isn't.

Aimed at young tweens and teens, this is a clear, factual and accessible explaination of what fake news is and what motivates people to create it.

The book looks at the various ways in which people receive information and the risks of being manipulated by half-truths, rumours or lies.

It considers what motivates those who create and disseminate fake news and aks what societies and individuals can do to spot and stop fake news.
