Debunk the Junk
Test your ability to evaluate the online news from the cyber-junk. In these stories about junk food, click on the link for each article and evaluate its source.

Things to keep in mind:

- Have you heard of this website? What kind of reputation do they have? (Google them to find out more info)

- Is the article credited to a named journalist? And what background or qualifications do they have? Even contact information or a personal staff page/bio is somewhat helpful.

- Is there an "About" page or other information available about who's responsible for the website?

- Can you find the same story being reported by other news sites?

-Can you trace the story back to real sources - businesses, organizations, real people? What concrete evidence is there that this story is true?
