Why Do Our Brains Love Fake News? | Video from KQED’s Above the Noise

February 25, 2019

Host Myles Bess breaks down the research around why our brains can so easily make us believe that fake news is real news.

ABOVE THE NOISE is a show that cuts through the hype and takes a deeper look at the science behind controversial and trending topics in the news.  Hosted by Myles Bess and Shirin Ghaffary.

This new (to us) series is aimed at teens, but after viewing a few episodes, I’m sure that most adults will benefit from it as well. Let us know what you think.

This is another installment of KQED’s Above the Noise series. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you.   [Chuck Almdale]
