It's time to move beyond talking about the obvious ways to identify mis- and disinformation by learning why we fall for fake news (and we all do) and how to dissuade others of their fake-news beliefs. The fake news spectrum is wide, and purveyors of misinformation play on our inherent biases to "trick" us into believing half-truths and falsehoods. Join us to learn how to recognize your own biases and find out how to effectively confront others about their misinformed beliefs.
