How to recognize fake news? And what’s the importance to look critically at images?

Nowadays fake news is everywhere. But not every mistake that a journalist makes is fake news. So it’s very difficult to recognize fake news. So we did a little quiz with our participants to test their knowledge. Is it news or not? Is it fake news or not? Step by step they learned to recognize news and fake news. And they gain insight into the creation of news off- and online. The participants also learned that it is important to analyse pictures in depth, because it can be a form of fake news or propaganda and not only news texts but also accompanied pictures can tell a story an influence someone’s interpretation of a news event.
