Good for the (Conservative) Forbes for realizing that fake news really is fake news. Perhaps our forum posters would be a bit more honest if they used these sources instead of click bait sites

"I am heartened by questions like these. A major shift in political and cultural life in our country means it is a good time for people to improve their own reading and learning habits. The Poynter Institute - an enlightened non-profit in St. Petersburg, Fla., that has an ownership role in the Tampa Bay Times and provides research, training and educational resources on journalism - provides many excellent online modules to help citizens improve their news media literacy."

(The Poynter Institute includes Politifact and Fact Check.org; as well as other fact checkers)

Mr. B,

I would dispute the NYT. They have been caught too many times inserting propaganda in the guise of news. The rest, I agree with.

Interesting. Notice CNN is not on that list.

One key question for any publication is this: If a reporter gets facts in a story wrong, will the news outlet investigate a complaint and publish a correction? Does the publication have its own code of ethics? Or does it subscribe to and endorse the Society of Professional Journalist’s code of ethics? And if a reporter or editor seriously violates ethical codes – such as being a blatant or serial plagiarizer, fabulist or exaggerator – will they be fired at a given news outlet? While some may criticize mainstream media outlets for a variety of sins, top outlets such as the Washington Post, the New York Times, NBC News and the New Republic have fired journalists for such ethics violations. That is remarkable in a world where some celebrities, politicians and other realms of media (other than news… such as Hollywood films “based on a true story”) can spread falsehood with impunity.

Yeah that's the answer to that question.

I'm frustrated with the current culture where people who acknowledge their mistakes get fired and silenced but people who deny and repeat obvious falsehoods and viciously attack anyone who questions them gets to keep on going indefinitely.
