    My bad. My intent was to point out the ease with which any yahoo on the internet can spread false information. Did not mean to make it political.

    The fact that so many more of us have been relying on social media, and the internet in general, for social interaction just made the ground that much more fertile for spreading unfounded info.

    As for who decides what the scientific facts are, that's done by peer-reviewed journals. You are more than welcome to submit your manuscript to one of them, or even start a new one.
    Very well said. There is most definitely a need to recognize the importance of expertise. The comfort provided by confirmation bias makes it all too seductive to accept that over an expert's assessment that you find uncomfortable.

    This has only become more of a threat during the pandemic, and after reading more details on the election interference of other Governments and non-state actors.
