True or false : a CIA analyst's guide to spotting fake news

Otis, Cindy L. (author.).

Summary: Fake news is not a new phenomenon. Otis, a former CIA analyst, takes readers from the ancient Egyptians to the founding fathers to the present day to show the history and impact of misinformation over the centuries. She shares actionable tips on how to spot fake news, and how to make sense of the information we receive each day. Perhaps most importantly, you'll learn how to understand and see past your own information biases, so that you can think critically about important issues and put events happening around you into context. -- adapted from Amazon info
