Misinformation, Fake News and Dishonesty: Living in a Post-Truth world

We constantly read that we have entered a “post-truth” era. As lies and “fake news” flourish, citizens appear not only to believe misinformation, but also to condone/ accept misinformation they do not believe. Dr. Effron’s research shows three psychological factors that encourage people to condone misinformation.

In his upcoming talk at #CyprusForum Dr. Effron will talk about how can we get people, the media and our society to recognise and condemn such behaviour and make interventions aimed at reducing the spread of misinformation.
