This LibGuide was created to help you evaluate the news around you, teach you to identify Fake News, Biased News, Satirical News, and Propaganda

The goal of gaslighting is to leave the target feeling off-kilter and unsure of what is true and what is not.  To force the target to feel neurotic, hyper-sensitive and out of control.
