About fake news. An interview about the danger of fake news. From TED Talks
How to seek truth in the era of fake news
Known worldwide for her courage and clarity, Christiane Amanpour has spent the past three decades interviewing business, cultural and political leaders who have shaped history. In conversation with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Amanpour discusses fake news, objectivity in journalism, the leadership vacuum in global politics and more, sharing her wisdom along the way. « Be careful where you get information from, » she says. « Unless we are all engaged as global citizens who appreciate the truth, who understand science, empirical evidence and facts, then we are going to be wandering around — to a potential catastrophe. »
This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.
And to end with, three more cow-boys songs (with lyrics) :
The streets of Laredo
Ghost riders in the sky – Johnny Cash
I look for to seeing you on Monday, October 16, same place, same hour.
