Southern California News Group ad campaign counters ‘fake news’

Southern California News Group in February launched a house-ad campaign that emphasizes the value of sourced, professional news gathering.

“The campaign reminds digital audiences they can streamline their news-consumption experience by reading reporting from trained journalists that report facts on behalf of reliable news organizations” SCNG said in a news release.

One adfeatures a UFO and the headline “Don’t be hoaxed by fake news.” The closing tagline reads, “Local. News. Matters. And so does the Truth.”
