Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "These volumes in the News Literacy series provide solid information that will help readers discern what is true and what's false in the media. The Fake News Phenomenon begins with an egregious example: the shooting at the Comet Ping Pong pizza parlor, where a young man opened fire after hearing it ran a child sex ring out of its basement. The book then goes on to discuss the long history of fake news and its relevance today, providing many examples and discussing their effect on civic life. The colorful format features a mix of stock photos, interesting charts, and informative sidebars as well as critical-thinking prompts and a page of Fast Facts. An important resource that will be especially useful in classroom discussions.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"
