Now that midterm elections are over there is bound to be an influx of emotionally charged media coverage from all sides of the political spectrum. With all of this information it can be easy to fall prey to ‘Fake News’, or disinformation that is being presented as fact with the intention of deceiving the public. ‘Fake News’ can be dangerous for many reasons, but the main one is that it is intentionally misleading the public to believe outrageous, and often emotionally driving distortions of reality.
