The three steps against disinformation and 'fake news'

How can you have a different opinion on a topic that is based on data? This is the question posed by business school professor Pablo Foncillas after noting that sometimes post-truth wins out over an opinion based on evidence. "And the arrival of the internet seems to have done nothing but exaggerate this phenomenon," he denounces.

In this sense, he maintains that anyone can spread a message today without any type of filter, rigor or criteria. That is why the promoter of innovation invites you to follow three steps to unmask false news.

First of all, it recommends questioning more often the information that reaches us, for example, through networks or instant messaging applications. To which he adds, secondly, the need to read more and investigate until he finds the original source of the information -if it exists-. And, third and last, try to interact with people who have contrary opinions. Learning to contrast is paramount.
