"Fake news" is a term you’ve probably heard a lot in the last few years, but it’s not a new phenomenon. From the ancient Egyptians to the founding fathers, fake news has been around as long as human civilization. But that doesn’t mean that we should just give up on the idea of finding the truth.

Then she shares lessons learned in over a decade working for the CIA, including actionable tips on how to spot fake news and how to understand and see past our own information biases, so that we can think critically about important issues and put events happening around us into context.
