Fake News is being talked about by everyone from your best friend, to your parents, perhaps even your goldfish are whispering in the corners of the tank. It’s even being covered by Real News at an alarming clip. Dictionary.com even listed ‘misinformation’ as their Word of the Year in 2018. However, this isn’t a particularly new problem, right? After all Jonathon Swift wrote in 1710, “Falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it”.
