Can you spot fake news?

This is a subject that has long fascinated me but especially when the fake news fits our own prejudices. In other words, do you care if it’s not true if it’s something your tribe believes in? Or even, do you share fake news, even when you know it’s fake, because you want other people to believe what you believe?

The BBC has an interesting take on this via its web site – see link below:-
