How to find the facts (Prove It: Part 4)

Today information is everywhere, but what should you trust? Can you spot the difference between well researched articles and stories full of opinion, errors or even lies?

In our final chapter of “Prove It: How to find the facts,” we’ll find out how to think like a fact checker.

Plus we’ll share clues on how to spot warning signs of bogus information. We also look into the claim that coffee stunts your growth and for our Moment of Um we explore the world of freckles.
