Stopping the spread of misinformation is everyone’s responsibility!

Misinformation has become a core part of the news cycle and remains a leading area of concern across independent, private, and public organizations. Content from non-credible news sites, paid bloggers, and sophisticated videos masquerading as legitimate newscasts has found fertile ground in the social media scene. Identifying and stopping the spread of misinformation is vital to ensure that credible news sources maintain levels of trust.

Stop. Before you share.

Reflect. On what you see or read.

Verify. That the information is accurate.

Remember to share responsibly.
