FAKE! Everything you should (not) believe about fake news, mindfuck and conspiracy theories

Annemarie Bon & Wendy Panders A lot of people believe the craziest things. But what is true and what isn’t? How do journalists and scientists do their jobs – as searching for the truth is their main goal? There are all kinds of theories out there, propagated by people who will tell you they know the truth. Scientists, however, never say they know the truth, they just work with a theory until a better theory becomes available. Fake! doesn’t contain one easy answer to all kinds of questions, as life isn’t that simple. But this book can help you learn how to separate truth from nonsense.
