4 days ago
Dr. Daniel J. Levitin is the #1 best-selling author of A Field Guide to Lies: Critical Thinking in the Information Age and today he’ll teach you how to sharpen your b.s. detector. He exposes ways supposedly reliable news sources like USA Today and Fox News monkey with charts and graphs to fool you and how to tell whether a website is a reliable news source or has a hidden a agenda. We discuss some terms you should know when looking at health data, we make sense of the proliferation of counter-knowledge on the internet, we talk about why you can’t always trust experts, and we fact check the 2016 election.
