Philosopher Regina Rini on how to fix fake news here.

One response to “What’s Wrong With Fake News?

  1. I believe Dr. Rini sheds light on an important factor surrounding the spread of misinformation online, the lack of personal accountability and ownership of information shared. However, the solution of providing an accountability rating seems troublesome. Although it is not outright censorship, the rating could lead to individuals being altogether discounted and their free speech essentially ignored. This could be unjust if the system for labeling individuals was used by individuals to silence others, or other groups. While some level of accountability on the spread of misinformation is needed, personal rating systems seem a bit dystopian.
