Course: Dartmouth Summer Lecture 5: Disinformation, Misinformation - Finding the Truth (OSH-PXDART5)

Since the rise of social media and the 2016 election, there has been increasing recognition that facts themselves have become a battleground, amid widespread disinformation (that is, the often viral circulation of falsehoods) and misinformation (the intentional promulgation of untruths) are considered epidemic by many. We will consider how prevalent the problems really are, what practical difference they are making, including in our politics, how the press has been responding (for both better and worse), and how these phenomena in America interact with similar issues elsewhere.
