Impact of fake news

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Political psychologist, Dr. Bart Rossi, joined us in the studio to discuss the impact of fake news.

  • “What is Fake News? It’s a complete fabrication and some with a shred of truth.”
  • “Why does Fake News Works: it relates to a person’s ‘belief system.’ So, if a person has a particular bias or prejudice or extreme thinking, Fake News is something they ‘want’ to believe.
    • Examples:
      Responsible news media need to step up, calling out lies and fabrications on a regular basis. Social media and bizarre sites should not affect millions of people negatively.
    • Check out questionable stories on your own.
