Ring True #5: Bad News

Ring True explores the role of politics, psychology, and tech giants in the spread of misinformation in science. The six-part miniseries will also examine how research, policymaking, and journalism help or hurt the spread of misinformation. How fast does falsehood travel before the truth catches up with it? This episode, we explore research in pre-bunking with prebuttals, and other studies on misinformation led by Hugo Leal and Sander van der Linden.
