Good morning.

0:00:130:00:14

Ayshah here, with the stories

you need to know this Wednesday.

0:00:140:00:18

First up today, Fake News.

0:00:180:00:24

Do you think you should have lessons

in school to spot it?

0:00:240:00:27

One expert says you should,

and a group of kids had a go,

0:00:270:00:30

in a special class.

0:00:300:00:31

Hayley's got this.

0:00:310:00:32

Fake news.

0:00:320:00:33

Fake news.

0:00:330:00:34

Fake news.

0:00:340:00:36

Fake news.

0:00:360:00:37

Fake news.

0:00:370:00:38

It's been one of the most talked

about problems of the year.

0:00:380:00:40

Fake news.

0:00:400:00:42

But what is it, and what

does it mean to you?

0:00:420:00:46

Fake news is when somebody

spreads rumours that are

0:00:460:00:48

not true.

0:00:480:00:49

It is more like a scam, I think.

0:00:490:00:52

I think fake news is rumours spread

around by people to get

0:00:520:00:55

attention.

0:00:550:00:58

Sometimes it is so persuasive that

you think that it is

0:00:580:01:01

real.

0:01:010:01:04

If it is serious news you can

get worried and start

0:01:040:01:07

thinking about stuff

too much.

0:01:070:01:08

It makes you feel annoyed and angry.

0:01:080:01:12

It's really hard to know

when things are true or not.

0:01:120:01:19

When I hear something

and I believe it, I

0:01:190:01:21

feel like I have been

tricked or something.

0:01:210:01:23

Fake news normally comes

down to two things.

0:01:230:01:25

Firstly the news stories that

are not true at all.

0:01:250:01:28

They go online and are shared

on social media even though

0:01:280:01:31

the person writing them knows

they are made up.

0:01:310:01:34

Number two, stories that

may have some truth

0:01:340:01:36

to them but the facts

are

0:01:360:01:38

not clear or checked

properly, or the writer

0:01:380:01:40

has exaggerated some

of

0:01:400:01:41

it to mean what they want it to.

0:01:410:01:44

Would you be able to spot it?

0:01:440:01:46

These kids are taking

part in a project

0:01:460:01:49

looking at how much

kids like you know

0:01:490:01:53

about fake news and how

they

0:01:530:01:55

deal with it.

0:01:550:01:57

It is part of a project that

has been running all

0:01:570:02:00

year.

0:02:000:02:01

The expert in charge of it thinks

that from the age of ten, kids

0:02:010:02:04

should be taught more

about how to spot fake news.

0:02:040:02:06

Children know that fake

news exists, but do they

0:02:060:02:09

actually recognise it when they see

it online, on TV and in the

0:02:090:02:12

newspapers?

0:02:120:02:13

That is where lessons would really

help because children

0:02:130:02:17

can stop thinking

and feeling they can

0:02:170:02:19

actually believe the news

is

0:02:190:02:20

true and might start switching off

altogether and actually not showing

0:02:200:02:23

an interest in the

world around them.

0:02:230:02:32

So what does this class think

of what they learnt?

0:02:320:02:34

I think it should be

taught in school because

0:02:340:02:36

then they can be more aware of what

is surrounding them and they will

0:02:360:02:39

know if it is fake or not

and what to believe.

0:02:390:02:42

It's taught me about fake news

and it could be serious.

0:02:420:02:45

If you were not taught about it,

you would not know what is true.

0:02:450:02:48

Now I know how to spot

fake news by who

0:02:480:02:51

posted it, and the likes,

and where it comes

0:02:510:02:53

from and if I don't know

I

0:02:530:02:54

will ask my friends and families.

0:02:540:02:56

The best advice I would say

is to look out for proper brands.

0:02:560:03:00

It helps students to

help other people learn

0:03:000:03:02

about what fake news

is about and maybe even

0:03:020:03:05

teach your mum and dad and stuff.

0:03:050:03:09

If it is fake, you will not know

what is happening in the

0:03:090:03:12

world.

0:03:120:03:13

Thanks for that.

0:03:130:03:16

And there loads more about this

story over at Newsround online.

0:03:160:03:21

Where you can also check

out our guide on how to spot fake

0:03:210:03:24

news when you see it,

and even test yourself

0:03:240:03:26

with our Fake News quiz.

0:03:260:03:30

So England's cricket team are now

two down in the famous Ashes

0:03:300:03:32

competition in Australia.

0:03:320:03:35

It took about an hour

and 45 minutes for their six

0:03:350:03:38

remaining batsmen to go down

on the final day in Adelaide.

0:03:380:03:42

The Australians won

the second test by 120 runs.

0:03:420:03:46

The first team to win three matches

will take the Ashes.

0:03:460:03:48

Now is the time for a great

comeback, England!

0:03:480:03:54

To the problem facing brown bears

in Croatia, and the one place

0:03:540:03:58

that is trying to help.

0:03:580:03:59

Here's Martin.

0:03:590:04:07

These Croatian brown bears are

unable to survive in the wild by

0:04:070:04:11

themselves, but now they are finding

a new home in the country's only

0:04:110:04:16

sanctuary for the furry animals. Up

to 1000 bears are estimated to live

0:04:160:04:20

in Croatia, particularly in the big

forest areas in the middle of the

0:04:200:04:24

country. But some bear cubs find

themselves abandoned due to hunting

0:04:240:04:28

and other reasons. This sanctuary is

in a small village near forests and

0:04:280:04:33

mountains which is a home to many

bears. It was started in 2002 to

0:04:330:04:37

look after cubs who could not

survive in the wild. The animals at

0:04:370:04:42

the century are divided by age into

three big spaces totalling around

0:04:420:04:47

six acres. There are currently nine

bears living here in the hope is

0:04:470:04:51

that some eventually will be

released back in the wild. Brown

0:04:510:04:54

bears can live up to the age of 40

and hunting in the country has

0:04:540:04:58

brought the average age in the wild

down to between four and eight

0:04:580:05:02

years. Around 20,000 visitors are

attracted to the sanctuary each year

0:05:020:05:07

and the brown bear has now become a

symbol of the local village. Those

0:05:070:05:12

bears are adorable.

0:05:120:05:13

And exciting news for space fans!

0:05:130:05:14

Cue the music!

0:05:140:05:19

This Friday,

0:05:190:05:20
