Examples of Fake News

Look some examples of Fake News:

Example 1: A website

Example 2: A newspaper article

Example 3: A Twitter post

For each example, ask yourself HOW is it made to look real?

Then use the 5Ws (Who? What? When? Where? Why?) to help you spot the signs that it is fake.

If you need a refresher on the 5Ws please view the Introduction to Fake News page.
