Why verification matters
Information disorder refers to the many ways our information environment is polluted. The term ‘fake news’ doesn’t begin to cover all of this. Most of this content isn’t even fake; it’s often genuine, used out of context and weaponized by people who know that falsehoods based on a kernel of truth are more likely to be believed and shared. Understanding this landscape is the first step towards accurately and responsibly reporting on it.
