It’s easy to demand that media and social media giants do the work sifting helpful facts from dangerous fancy. In this episode of Thriving Online, Julie Scelfo, a former New York Times reporter, author and TED veteran, explains how audiences can help. You can train yourself, using habits honed by the best journalists, to sniff out spin, helping you and your networks chart a reality-based course through turbulent times.
Thriving Online is a weekly series of conversations building and spreading communication skills and tools that can help make information and online connectivity matter. Your host is Andy Revkin, longtime New York Times journalist and founding director of the Earth Institute Initiative on Communication and Sustainability.
