Reality Check
Jan 12th, 2017, 11:43pm
According to this report in The Guardian, The BBC is

"to assemble a team to fact check and debunk deliberately misleading and false stories masquerading as real news.......

The plans will see the corporation’s Reality Check series become permanent, backed by a dedicated team targeting false stories or facts being shared widely on social media.....

The new emphasis on tackling false information is part of the BBC’s attempt to do more “slow news”, using in-depth analysis and expertise in a bid to help the public understand an especially tumultuous period in the UK’s history."

Isn't this a "false story masquerading as real news"?    Or are  we to take it as meaning that BBC journalists will now start to check their facts?
