Infographic: Beyond Fake News – 10 Types of Misleading News

We live in an era of technological advances where we work, learn, communicate, get
informed, and have fun online. Regardless of age, people nowadays tend to interact
with devices, gadgets, and a variety of media almost all day. At the same time, many
agree that we live in a post-truth era where non-factual and subjective perspectives
increasingly impact our beliefs, thoughts and perception of reality. Negative and biased
beliefs of specific groups of people (e.g. people of colour, homeless, disabled, women,
refugees, migrants, etc.) form part of the information we come across online. Source: eavi media literacy for citizenship. EAVI is registered in Brussels under the statute of AISBL – Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif
