How to avoid falling for fake news

“Fake news” is a buzzword used by both sides of the aisle to try to create a moral equivalency between the news and the other two forms of propaganda: “news” and “propaganda.”

“It’s a way of saying that you’re going to say whatever you want to say, because you’re doing it for the money,” said Robert Pape, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations who has studied fake news for years.

“But the truth is you’re not, and that’s really problematic.”

In the last year, President Donald Trump has used the phrase in more than 20 tweets and in his first press conference in nearly a month, saying he believes it is a “disgrace.”

A White House spokeswoman said Trump “believes the media is fake news and is trying to rig the election for Hillary Clinton.”

Fake news is a broad term that includes anything that doesn’t conform to what mainstream news sources typically publish.

The term itself, though, is often used to refer to news that purports to come from a source that is not affiliated with the news organization in question.

Fake news, which has become increasingly popular in recent years, is an area where the United States and many countries have come under fire for failing to do enough to fight it.

In recent years we’ve seen a proliferation of fake news websites and social media platforms that peddle “fake news,” which they call alternative facts.

They often use a mixture of conspiracy theories, sensational headlines and conspiracy theories to drive traffic and profits to websites that are popular among the right-wing and often hostile to mainstream media outlets.

“There’s a growing body of evidence that fake news is real,” said David French, director of the Center for Information Technology and Public Policy at New York University.

The phenomenon has spawned an online backlash.

A survey by the Pew Research Center found that nearly three-quarters of American adults have heard some kind of criticism of the media from friends or family members, while nearly half said they had been called a “doxxer” or “disinfo.”

It’s also a trend that has been linked to a rise in anti-Semitic incidents and to a recent uptick in racist threats targeting Jewish communities.

In some instances, fake news sites have created “troll farms” to target political opponents and critics of the Trump administration, said French, who has investigated fake news online for decades.

“The notion that you can get away with it because the information is coming from a trusted source is very dangerous,” French said.

In the past year, the president’s own administration has launched a “war on facts” that was led by press secretary Sean Spicer, who made headlines last month when he tweeted that his boss is “not even a good liar.”

Trump’s campaign has also been under fire since it published false statements about him and his aides during the campaign.

The President also has been under scrutiny over the handling of the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, which included the hiring of former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired last week.

The investigations into Russia and Trump have also become part of a larger partisan political debate, with Trump’s opponents accusing him of stoking the issue to boost his political career.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing and called the Russia investigations “fake” news, while Democrats and other critics have called it an attempt to delegitimize the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election.

The Trump administration has also launched multiple investigations into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, a retired four-star general who was caught up in the probe, and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who had to resign in May after she refused to defend Trump’s first travel ban after he called it a Muslim ban.

In February, the Justice Department issued a public statement accusing Flynn of lying to the vice president about his communications with the Russian ambassador.

In a separate statement, the department said Yates made a false statement that “appeared to indicate that Ms. Yates did not have a policy directive to decline any request for an extension of the invitation to visit Russia.”

Trump has also said the Russia probe has damaged his standing with the American people, including calling for the investigation to be closed down.

But in his new book, “The Art of the Deal,” Trump calls for an independent special prosecutor to investigate the Russia investigation and said the “real scandal is not the Russia inquiry, but the collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.”

“The real scandal is that the special counsel’s team has become the scapegoat, the scapegoats for all the problems in our country,” Trump wrote in the book.

The book, published last week, also says the investigation has exposed a “massive conflict of interest” in which “our president and his top advisers colluded to cover up the true facts of the collusion with Russia.”

But Pape said there is no reason to believe that the probe into Russia is anything like the Russia allegations.

“It is not an open-and-shut case.

There are no clear,
