Ring True #3: On The Shoulders of Tech Giants

Ring True explores the role of politics, psychology, and tech giants in the spread of misinformation in science. The six-part miniseries will also examine how research, policymaking, and journalism help or hurt the spread of misinformation. In this episode, we look at the business models of tech giants – Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google – and their role in the mainstreaming of misinformation.
