ŁH: Trump has schizophrenia. Merkel has a romance with Tusk. Duda snowboards in secret.  I’ve read all of that on twitter. Is it true? How should I know? 

HS: The earth is a sphere. No, it’s flat. No, no, it’s a plate on the back of a turtle. Actully, we only exist in a dream of a giant. There is countless theories. But how and based on what can we find out which one is true?

 

From time to time the internet is flooded with news about the inevitable end of the world, natural disasters and crazy traffic jams. It has happened repeatedly, that media duplicated news about the tragic demise of a famous actor, who in a mysterious way reappeared, disproving the gossip, as if risen from the death. In times of unlimited access to information, it’s not easy to determine, if things we perceive as set truths, actually are. The verification of facts, while being smothered by conflicting influences, is a hard nut to crack. During info:lab | fact checking we will try to determine how to prevent the overflow of false signals and not get fooled that vaccines cause autism or global warming is a myth.
