Slide 20 - Tekstslide

1.) United Airlines
In September 2008, a reporter for Miami-based Income Securities Advisors found a 2002 article about a financially moribund United Airlines filing for bankruptcy. However, the article itself was undated. As a result, the Google web crawler assigned it the date of the search, giving the impression that a half-dozen-year-old crisis was breaking news. The reporter then relayed the information to Bloomberg, a premier name in finance news, and as soon as the story went up, United Airlines’s stock price nosedived by 75 percent. Traders jettisoned 15 million shares, as the stunned company did its best to disabuse Bloomberg of the disastrous misconception.

2. A Poorly Translated Article Devalued The US Dollar

Slide 22 - Tekstslide

Guan Xiangdong, a tourism reporter for the China News Service, was tasked with filling in for her finance reporters that were on vacation in May 2005. Attempting to provide various perspectives on how an appreciation of China’s currency, the Renminbi, would affect the local economy, she pulled bits of from various media outlets to form her own collage of facts and opinions.
With lightning-quick reactivity, investors began dumping US dollars and buying everything from Renminbi to rupees in an avalanche of misinformed fervor. Within minutes, $2 billion had exchanged hands.

3.) Blindly Reporting A False Accusation Of Child Endangerment

Slide 24 - Tekstslide

Few crimes rival terrorism in emotional impact and reprehensibility, but wanton child neglect has a way of tapping into a public’s deepest wells of disdain. That’s why when news station KHOU accused Araceli Cisneros of leaving her two defenseless children to swelter in a car on a day measuring in at 32 degrees Celsius (90 °F) while she went to get a haircut, the public was irate. 
The stage for that rage was amplified when controversial show host Nancy Grace branded Cisneros unfit to raise a child, airing heartbreaking cell phone footage of people breaking the glass of the car door to rescue the trapped kids. That would all seem warranted were it not for the complicating detail that the story was an utter crock.

Slide 25 - Tekstslide

Cisneros was the victim of a dishonest witness looking to create a huge story at an innocent person’s expense. The mother didn’t abandon her offspring to bake like buns in an automotive oven to tend to cosmetic concerns. She’d actually accidentally locked her keys in the car and desperately begged for help. 
The people filmed rescuing her kids had arrived to the scene in response to Cisneros’s please for assistance. The news station would have discovered this reality had it not simply relayed the story without checking it for accuracy.

What is fake news?

Slide 34 - Open vraag

Fake news 
Fake news, also known as junk news, pseudo-news, alternative facts or hoax news, is a form of news consisting of deliberate disinformation or hoax spread via traditional news media (print and broadcast) or online social media.


Slide 35 - Tekstslide

Fake news 

 It often has the aim of damaging the reputation of a person or entity, or making money through advertising revenue.
It is sometimes generated and propagated by hostile foreign actors, particularly during elections.
Once common in print, the prevalence of fake news has increased with the rise of social media, especially the Facebook News Feed.

Slide 36 - Tekstslide

How do you recognize fake news?

Slide 37 - Open vraag

How do you recognise fake news? (1)
1. Read Past The Headline
One way that fake news gets amplified is that busy readers may not look past the headline or opening paragraph before they decide to share an article. Fake news publishers sometimes exploit this tendency, writing the beginning of a story in a straightforward way before filling in the rest with obviously false information. 
In other cases, clicking through to the article will reveal that the story really has nothing to do with the headline at all or provides nothing to back it up.

Slide 38 - Tekstslide

How do you recognise fake news? (2)
2. Check What News Outlet Published It
Unfamiliar websites plastered with ads and all-caps headlines should draw immediate skepticism. Googling a site’s name and checking out other articles it posts should also help determine whether it’s trustworthy. 
Many fake news sites will outright say that they are satire or don’t contain factual information, but others are made to mimic major news outlets. Check the URL names of pages that look suspect, making sure that it’s not a hoax site that is pretending to be a trusted source. 

Slide 39 - Tekstslide

How do you recognise fake news? (3)
3. Check The Publish Date And Time
Another common element in fake news is that old articles or events can resurface and lead people to believe they just happened. Checking the publish time stamp is something readers can quickly do to prevent being misled.
Sometimes, however, finding out when an event happened can take a bit more work ― such as when the date of an article is current, but the events described within it are old. Click through links and read carefully to determine when the event described actually happened. 

Slide 40 - Tekstslide

How do you recognise fake news? (4)
4. Who Is The Author?
Looking at who wrote the article can reveal a lot of information about the news source. Searching through the author’s previous articles can show whether they are a legitimate journalist or have a history of hoaxes.

Slide 41 - Tekstslide

How do you recognise fake news? (5)
5. Search If Other News Outlets Are Reporting It
If a story looks suspicious or claims to reveal major news, search to see if other news outlets are also reporting the story. A single article from a suspicious source making a grand claim should be viewed with heavy skepticism. If no reliable news outlets are also reporting the story, then it’s very likely fake.

Slide 42 - Tekstslide

How do you recognise fake news? (6)
6. Think Before You Share
Fake news sites rely on readers to share and engage with their articles in order for them to spread. In extreme cases, these fake articles can balloon out of control and have unintended consequences for those involved in the stories.
After fake news stories claimed that Hillary Clinton was sexually abusing children at a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant, the business owner and his employees received death threats and vicious online harassment. The staff is still under attack even though these false claims have been debunked.
