Fake News, Misinformation:

How to Deal with It.

Misinformation: Understanding

and Overcoming Deception


Social media often shares misleading information, but it is not alone in doing that. It is designed to notice what you like and then keeps showing you similar information.


This works well for finding deals on things you want to buy. However, when it comes to understanding the world, you end up seeing more of the same views you already have. This might make you feel like everyone agrees with you. It is important to remember there are many different opinions out there and hearing them can help us learn and grow.


We have developed an online series focused on so-called “logical fallacies”—the ways in which words can be used to deceive and mislead. This series aims to make each concept easy to understand, typically in under a minute, to engage a wide audience effectively.

Why Focus on Misinformation?

The rise of fake news and the ease with which misinformation spreads online compelled us to act. Our journey into debunking myths revealed a worrying trend of scams, conspiracy theories, and a resurgence of antisemitism, with dangerous falsehoods such as Holocaust denial. To combat this, we have improved our educational resources. This includes the restoration and colourisation of Holocaust footage under Project Empathy, to underline the importance of historical truth and empathy.
