Who’s to Blame for Fake News? Probably You

Featured Speaker: Amber Hinsley, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Communication, Saint Louis University

It’s time to move beyond talking about the obvious ways to identify mis- and disinformation by learning why we fall for fake news (and we all do) and how to dissuade others of their fake-news beliefs. The fake news spectrum is wide, and purveyors of misinformation play on our inherent biases to “trick” us into believing half-truths and falsehoods. Join us to learn how to recognize your own biases and find out how to effectively confront others about their misinformed beliefs.

Science in St. Louis Series is a partnership of the The Academy of Science – St. Louis and St. Louis County Library.
