For Your Consideration During A Time of Breaking News

It’s a good reminder to check multiple news sources, be wary of content that would make you or others especially emotional, and only share accurate info– don't repeat disinformation, it just gives it more oxygen.

Be the person your family, friends and community looks to for reliable and responsible information. We encourage you to spot and fight disinformation now.

How to Spot It

👉🏼 Be skeptical: Seem too extreme to be true? We live in wild times, if it seems bonkers, it probably is.

👉🏼 Look at multiple sources: Don't just count on one news or information source- verify what you're seeing by checking around.

👉🏼 Beware of emotional content: There's lots of real info that's upsetting, but disinformation counts on our emotions overruling our reason- things that make us angry create division.

How to Stop It

👉🏼 Share accurate information: Seems obvious, but this means both being a reliable source for your friends and family AND not sharing disinformation in order to disprove it- that just gives it more oxygen.

👉🏼 Know the reliable information sources: Government websites provide accurate information, so look for websites that end in .gov. But don't stop there- look at scholarly articles that are peer reviewed and news sites that cite their sources.

👉🏼 Call out friends and family with kindness and respect: Be that reliable source in your own networks, but let people know when they've made a mistake- something we all might do- start by sharing the correct info privately. If that doesn't work, just share the right info without being emotional or rude.

A tip of the hat to our sister league in Ohio.
