While you are reading this, thousands of false or malicious stories are spread all over the internet and in the media. Maybe you have already shared one. The rise of social platforms have placed journalism and the communications landscape under fire. Anyone can release and promote from misinformed opinions and rumors to orchestrated campaigns designed to deliberately harm a person, social group, organisation, or country.
