Ring True #4: For Fact’s Sake

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. This episode, we find out if journalism is still relevant, and whether journalists and academics should be fact-checkers.
