πŸ“‘ What magic teaches us about misinformation

Bookmarked What magic teaches us about misinformation (Tim Harford)

Pay attention; get some context; ask questions; stop and think. Misinformation doesn’t thrive because we can’t spot the tricks. It thrives because, all too often, we don’t try. We don’t try, because we are confident that we already did.

Tim Harford talks about the importance of paying attention as a means of seeing beyond the magic of misinformation. This reminds me of the work of Mike Caulfield of way in which the Four Moves provides a structure to pay attention.
