The following is false:
‘The only thing we can do is to improve our critical thinking & media literacy, & learn what we must be on guard against … we can learn tools to defend ourselves in this era of rapid falsehood. We need to marshal our ability to think critically‘ https://mobile.twitter.com/drg1985/status/1209049776773378048
Critical thinking, media literacy, etc. are very poor tools for defending against viral falsehoods.
It’s also awful & condescending to believe that viral believers lack critical thinking or are stupid.
