Description

Today, V’s putting your information literacy skills to the test by taking a look at recent news that didn’t happen but received a lot of attention. Sometimes the truth doesn’t make for an interesting story, so people spice it up with lies in the hopes of getting clicks. And in these cases, it worked. V debunks rumors including New York City’s water being contaminated with polio, the IRS hiring for armed jobs, and Denmark banning kids from getting vaccinated. So, how do we spot false news and make sure we’re spreading facts? V asks Google Product Manager Nidhi Hebbar to weigh in on the issue. We’ll hear about what tools Google has launched to combat misinformation and how to identify lies early enough to flag for friends and family.


Follow Nidhi at @nidhihebbar on Twitter and take a look at Google’s misinformation tools.
