[Air-L] Recommendations (Sarah Ketchley)

Hi Sarah

If you're looking for academic articles as well as media texts, then the recent EASST review has some interesting short articles on post-truth specifically related to Trump in the 'STS Live' section - https://easst.net/issue/easst-review-volume-362-july-2017/ 

These aren't about evaluating facts on the internet specifically, but are more philosophical (and disciplinary) arguments about the status of facts, truth and expertise.

These are interesting reads, if you have not come across them already:



This website is tracking Russian bots etc:


And an interesting podcast from NPR:

Not much help regarding strategies for getting facts though I'm afraid.
