A Better Mid-South: Fake news

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

Fake news has captured headlines recently. Fake news is defined as a way to deliberately publish hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation…as a way to mislead an audience.

I feel compelled to assure you the journalists who make up the WMC Action News 5 team are committed to reporting the truth.

We have a process in place that requires our journalists to move through a series of fact checking and verifying before we present stories to you.

We do this because nothing is more important than our integrity as we serve you.

You may not always like what we report, but you can be assured the journalists on our team are doing their jobs to uncover the truth for you.

What are your thoughts about fake news?  Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or post a message on my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South.

Having trusted sources for news in our community makes this A Better Mid-South.
