You’ve seen it. That meme that seems just too good to be true. That outlandish story your family member prefaced with, “Can you believe he said that?” followed by a video link of unknown origin and vintage.
We are in an era of misinformation — and even disinformation, when someone intentionally disseminates false or misleading information. And while there are some bad actors, also important are social and psychological forces that lead people to spread and fall for false information in the first place.
Join Sarah Silverman, comedian and host of the Sarah Silverman Podcast, and Times reporters Kevin Roose, Sheera Frenkel and Davey Alba as they untangle the roots of disinformation, and the effects it has on our world.
