A student of mine shared a "news story" regarding a white teen who sued his parents for being born white. My student was under the impression that this was true. I looked it up and the source was a parody website.

When Covid first came out a student said that it was fake and just a government conspiracy.
Frederica Carr
01:12:22
A student asked me if I thought the appearance of the virus during an election year was a coincidence.
James Diokno
01:14:23
I have had several students deny the existence of systemic racism. One went as far as to tell me that POC need to figure out when racism is actually racism. Disclosure, I am POC
Kathleen Soto-Gomez

I like dispelling the myth that the US was "founded" as if it was ever "lost"... since we know many indigenous peoples lived here thousands of years before it's "founding"

01:15:34
What do you think about the role of cable tv in this, and why doesn't the FCC do anything about it?
Aaron Roberts

In English, one of the biggest issues I’m seeing over the years is the rise of “sponcon” or sponsored content, sponsored studies, and “institutes” and “universities” that are taking contrarian positions but look as if they are legit. Things like Praeger U, industry-sponsored journal articles about climate change, mass incarceration, etc.
Frederica Carr
01:19:59
One of the questions that people pose is 'Do you believe in science?'. I have found this as a source of problems because once they think that science is a belief system they think they can rdeny it with some alternative belief system.
Chris Conner
01:20:38
We are also discovering the unreliability of eyewitness accounts in criminal justice. In sociology, we discuss subjectivity quite a bit...so as Prof. Luengo was saying...the definition of truth can be slippery.
Joanne Carrubba (she, her, hers)
01:20:56
There is the 1776 report that just came out that denies the impact of slavery in the founding of the US, and refutes the Civil Rights Movement. This report also calls Higher Ed spaces as liberal misinformation machines
James Diokno
01:22:51
I take the first two weeks of every course to talk about the importance of citations (I use APA in anthropology) and what constitutes peer-reviewed sources and their importance
Maha Gebara-Lamb
01:24:03
primary sources matter too
Frederica Carr
01:35:22
This personal experience vs. the broad numbers was one of the issues that I brought up to students when I was asked about whether the election was rigged. Part of the techniques I noticed being used in all of the misinformation is based on this information bias people have.

.gov and .org used to mean more credibility than .coms
Stacey Vera
01:44:56
who to trust?
Stacey Vera
01:45:15
scary for students
James Diokno
01:46:44
it’s ego. people consume things that are bad for us all the time even though we know it’s bad for us. information included. humans are the greatest fabricators of fiction in the entire natural world
Frederica Carr
01:47:15
I ask students to give one perspective on an issue and then another perspective on the issue such as you would do if you were investigating an accident because students all too often would argue a certain view before knowing the full picture. They would then shut down and not listen to anything else.

It’s a great one!
Frederica Carr

I have found that people consider bias to be the same as falsehoods. So instead of evaluating the information with the bias in mind, they ignore it altogether.
