MacVoices #19182: Charlotte Henry On Fake News and “Not Buying It”

Charlotte Henry has authored a new book on one of the hottest topics in today’s world, tech or otherwise. Not Buying It is Charlotte’s examination of “fake news” and the effect it is having on almost everything. Charlotte helps us define and identify fake news, what makes it different from simple rumor mongering, and why it isn’t necessarily politically motivated. Are we really living in a “post-truth era”? How to improve your digital literacy, whether or not there should be regulations to help curb the fake news epidemic, and why trust comes so hard these days are all part of Charlotte’s examination of the subject.
