Join SCIP Dallas for this 45-minute multi-media presentation that describes who promotes disinformation, their objectives, and what we can do to fight back. 


“Our best defense against hostile influence, whatever its vector, is to invest in critical thinking skills at all levels of the population so that outlandish claims are seen for what they truly are: emotional exploitation for political or monetary gain.”

About Fake or Fact?

The Age of Disruption has spawned the Age of Disinformation, and we are struggling to distinguish fake from fact. Opportunists are manipulating social media platforms to spread disinformation, creating confusion over basic facts and encouraging social and political polarization. This is undermining rational discourse and decision-making, with serious ramifications for civil society, democracy and business. Some hope social media, government or technology will come to the rescue. But in each case, someone must decide what constitutes false information. With this comes the risk that legitimate voices will be shut out, a slippery slope that could result in censorship and the abrogation of our First Amendment rights.
