When are messages not fake messages?

What is fake news?
Fake news is made up of two terms. "Fake" means "fake" and "news" means "news". So it's fake news. Lurid headlines, fake pictures and allegations are used in this way to spread lies and propaganda. Fake news gives the impression that it is real news.
Why is there fake news?
Fake news should impress people. Readers should click, like and forward the fake news. This is how money is made. Criminals use fake news for scams.
Dangerous fake news
It is often not easy to tell whether it is real news or fake news.
Four steps can help:
- Take a close look at the news
Look carefully at the message. If everything looks like a headline, if it's all about sensation then be careful. If only one opinion is being expressed, with no explanation, if mood is to be raised, then be careful.
- Think for yourself
Always think before you forward a message. If you have any doubts about the authenticity of the message: Better not like it and spread it.
- Read critically
Numbers and quotations are often mentioned in fake news. They appear without anyone realizing where they come from. Caution is advised. Check if the post is very one-sided. Is there only one opinion or are other views also being discussed?
- Check sources
Real news comes from reliable sources. Check who is spreading the message! There must be an “imprint” on every publication. There must be the name, address and contact details of the person who is responsible for the messages on the site. If this information is missing or incorrect, caution should be exercised. If other media do not spread this message, there is cause to doubt the accuracy of the message.
