Hoaxes & Other Bad Information in the News

Genie Tyburski of The Virtual Chase has put together a nice page of articles about Hoaxes and Other Bad Information in the News.
Tyburski offers “this listing as anecdotal evidence of what can happen when journalists, experts or other professionals fail to follow proper research procedures. Good research habits include identifying sources, assessing their expertise and verifying information found.” Amen!
The hoaxes page is part of a guide to Evaluating the Quality of Information on the Internet.
