Fake News.  The Globe and Mail's editor Evan Annett wrote a "fake news spotting quiz" to help readers understand what fake news looks like and what forms it comes in.  Annett's definition of fake news falls under 5 categories:  disinformation for profit, disinformation for political gain, disinformation for crime, viral pranks, and uncritically reporting a hoax as fact. 
  • Snopes.  One of the most popular websites for fact checking.  The team works hard to verify or debunk viral stories.  The Snopes' staff has no political agenda since "members of the editorial staff are precluded from donating to, or participating in, political campaigns, political parties, or political advocacy organizations."  Snopes is a famous go-to site for anyone trying to debunk a myth - or a fake news story.
