Is fake news really the problem?

Is fake news really the problem?

While the term appears in the headlines and on the lips of everyday internet users, is ‘fake news’ really the problem? Or are we facing something much more complex? Mark Surman, Executive Director of the Mozilla Foundation, takes us on a winding journey through misinformation, filter bubbles, content sorting algorithms, shady political ads and cyber warfare in an attempt to show what’s really going on. At the end he asks: what role can media literacy play in rebuilding our democracies? And where should companies and governments do more?
