Can Fake News be Eliminated?

Fake news has been a larger concern in recent media. Yesterday, two teams of three panelist debated whether or not fake news can be solved, and if so, how? One thing to keep in mind is that no matter how hard we try, fake news is going to still be around. Jane Elizabeth stated, in the debate, “There will always be people that refuse to believe we landed on the moon.” In other words, she is addressing that the people that refuse to believe we landed on the moon, may be writers talking about how the moon landing was all fake. However, on the other hand of the debate, the panelist believe this issue is a lot smaller compared to many other issues our society has solved. Therefore, there is a way to eliminate fakes news. What do you think? Is there a way to solve the issue of fake news?

  1. Like it says in the article, “Fake news has always existed, only by other names – urban legends, conspiracy theories or propaganda.” I don’t think there is a way to solve the issue of “fake news.” They are just buzz words that will fizzle out in a few months. It’s a made up thing to get people to address the real issues, as you have stated.

  2. I think the lack of education makes people not realize what article to trust. Anyone can benefit from taking a class or practicing reading article and differenciating the difference between fake news and real news. With having so many different sources it does not makes sense for people to not be educated on how to read news correctly.
