Fake news is now a phrase that millions of people use in everyday conversation. but it is a serious charge against journalists and organizations, which affects their reputation, credibility, and reliability.

Simon Says will address this topic on a regular basis. At first, emphasis will attempt to define fake news but also educate listeners about different types of journalism.

The fake news issue isn’t going away with President Trump in office raising the question weekly. Simon Says has extended invitation to other journalism leaders to be contributors about this issue. Two who have agreed to talk about this topic are experts in social media and online journalism. Simon Says believes we will be ahead of the curve in educating you what is real and what is fake.

Simon Says, would you do this for me?

Please share this episode on your social media. Share it with your friends, Share it in forums and groups that address journalism, television, radio, newspapers, or online topics.

The reason I am asking you to this FREE thing for me is that the response so far in a little less than two months has been outstanding. I want the momentum to grow. We’ve all seen the stupid and silliness in everyday life. Simon Says is a mission to inform but in a even-handed fun and engaging way that anyone can listen.

If Simon Says were to receive a grade for its content, it would be “E” for everyone. We’ll always be above board.

And a topic we will be addressing in the near future is Nike. Is the so-called boycott talk real or fake? Rob Plaza of Key Private Bank, who joined us this summer as our financial expert, performs in-depth research on the company, whether they are in the news or not. What Rob will tell you on Simon Says won’t be heard or seen anywhere else, except for locations like CNBC where Rob has been a frequent guest for years.

That’s why i want you to share this episode and the entire Simon Says site. We’ll never win a Pulitzer or Edward R. Murrow award (but maybe we can dream) but we will do our part to take information to a respected level.
