Filtering Through The Fake: Raising the Bar for Information Consumption

"I can filter out four or five star quality hotels and restaurants today. We can't do that with our personal information."

In this episode of the award-winning podcast series "Disinformation," host Paul Brandus discusses the need for safety standards in the information we consume. While there are regulations in place for the safety of our food, water, and air, there are none for the content we see just as often.
