Think You Can Tell Real News From Fake News?

It is a weird world we're living in and it's sometimes hard to sort out truth from fiction. Factitious is a game that tests your ability to spot fake news. I scored pretty well but I misidentified a true story titled "Cops swear in 'drug sniffing' bearded dragon" as fake news. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

Test your news sense here. It's fun.

Interesting, I thought I would have a head start knowing about the Bearded Dragon. Wrong, they didn't show me that story. Must have a stash of stories they randomly show, or sets they randomly show.

These days fake news can be very convincing and real news unbelievable.
