We are living in an amazing age where information is available at our finger tips. With just a few keystrokes, we can access volumes of data and information about just about any topic we desire, but the question is: how good is that information and is there an agenda behind the source that is not immediately obvious? With the Internet and social media, disinformation and propaganda can spread just as fast as objective analysis and scientific facts. How can we know that the information we are getting is reliable? The answer to that question is complicated, but perhaps it begins with being aware of the many ways that information is being manipulated and delivered to us for nefarious purposes.
