This has been out for a while on YouTube but I had not seen it, and it's excellent.

As a journalist with extensive experience, Ali has had the opportunity to witness all forms of news. One type, in particular, poses a threat that has been exacerbated in our digital media society - fake news. Ali discusses the problems of fake news, how we are all affected by it, and how individuals can ensure the news they’re reading is rooted in fact, not fiction.

Fact check your sources and do NOT spread fake news. It grows exponentially no matter what your motive for sharing it. Ali Velshi would know.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
