Fake news is a phrase that you hear a lot thrown around these days, especially in journalism. One reason why they do it is to get the reads, they put out a juicy and interesting headline to suck readers into their articles. Filak also teaches us how to fight fake news by always being suspicious and not believing everything we see without doing some digging first.
Filak also talks about how this is the social media era. That social media is how we get most of our news, and all of the platforms that are out there. He also states that we are losing our attention spans because of it and I would thoroughly agree with it. Every time a notification pops up on your phone you have to check it as soon as it pops up. It’s just the way we live now, the information and everything we need is in the palm of our hands.
