Even though we're a year out from the next presidential election, "fake news" is already in the news, whether it's Russia trying to sway low-information voters, Facebook allowing political ads with blatant lies in them, or how our own president should be covered from a news standpoint. We've brought in an expert to tell us what we can do to make sure that we're media literate: Michelle Ciulla Lipkin, Executive Director of the National Association for Media Literacy Education. Plus, tips on what to do when you see other people spreading fake news.
