Ring True #6: Off The Hook

Ring True explores the role of politics, psychology, and tech giants in the spread of misinformation in science. The six-part miniseries also examines how research, policymaking, and journalism help or hurt the spread of misinformation. What does good anti-misinformation legislation look like? In the last episode of Ring True, we take a look at the Anti Fake News Bill in Malaysia and around the world – and find out why it has missed the mark, so far.
