Misinformation has had a significant influence on elections, public health etc.; however, there are critical thinking skills that can help you recognize misinformation when you come across it.


Tod Perry writing in Upworthy, makes the following points:
  • Those who are most susceptible to misinformation don't trust fact-checkers.
  • 'The word fact-checking itself has become politicized.'
  • Exposing people to arguments against their beliefs can improve their critical thinking ability and make people less susceptible to misinformation.
  • Teaching people to make their own correct decisions will be more effective than removing content through fact-checks.
