"We're drowning in all this information." - Dr. Daniel Levitin
this episode of "Disinformation," host Paul Brandus and analyst
Meredith Wilson explore the overwhelming amount of information that
bombards us each day. Dr. Daniel Levitin, a cognitive psychologist and
author, explains that we are faced with five times more information than
ever before, making it difficult to discern what is true and what is
not. The rise of social media and tribalism further complicates this
issue, as we tend to trust and align with like-minded individuals. Bret Schafer and Peter Benzoni of the Alliance for Securing Democracy discuss countermeasures in NATO and the Marshall Plan.
