Misinformation, disinformation, and fake news abound and it’s increasingly difficult to know what’s true. Our media environment has become hyperpartisan. Science is conducted by press release. We are fairly well equipped to spot the sort of old-school misinformation that is based in fancy rhetoric and weasel words, but most of us don’t feel qualified to challenge the avalanche of new-school BS presented in the language of math, science, or statistics. Join UW’s Carl Bergstrom, Professor of Biology, and Jevin West, Associate Professor at the Information School and Director of the Center for an Informed Public, as they give us a set of tools to cut through the most intimidating data.
