The Reconnect 11-18-16 | How to spot fake news with Bob Smietana | News of the week

We begin our series “Be wise about fake news sites” today with veteran reporter Bob Smietana. Today we survey the issue by asking the question: what is fake news and how do we spot it? Then, we talk about why it is so important for Christians to be truth-sharers and be vigilant about what we share on social media.

In our second half, we touch on the news of the day. Planned Parenthood and other similar organizations have had a fundraising bonanza following the election of Donald Trump. Harambe is the in the news again, and we discuss the important worldview questions at stake there.
