BBC’s Video Game On Fake News Backfires

4F77E4F5-EE9B-44B7-82DE-8E3AA26C5B91LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – The tech gurus at BBC have deveoped an interactive video game for young people to help them detect fake news on mainstream and social media.

But alas, the game backfired on BBC.

In the final segment of the video game, players were asked to check from a list of news sources which ones they think are purveyors of fake news.

Among those checked by game players were: New York Times, Enquirer, CNN.

And… BBC News.

Is this a case of young people biting the hands of those who feed them?
