'Bamse' speaks out about fake news
Sweden hasn't wasted any time teaching children about fake news. Bamse, one of Swedish children's favorite cartoon bears, will soon be reminding children about the dangers of fake news and the need to be critical in their search for information.
“You have to be critical of sources, and you have to learn that at an early age. Through drawing attention to that subject we also hope that some parents will get involved and discuss it with their kids,” Bamse’s editor in chief Charlotta Borelius said. The children's book will be released this month with a second one on the subject expected later this year.ADVERTISEMENT
