Disinformation is packaged to make it more appealing

Fight disinformation with the facts

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on." - Winston Churchill

Make it mobile friendly: "Young people are most likely to get their news through online sources, relying heavily on mobile devices for their communications. According to the Pew Research Center, 55% of smartphone users receive news alerts on their devices." - Brookings

Sell the sizzle, not the steak: Sell the outcome of what it is that you’re selling. Data isn't persuasive, how it changes peoples' lives does.

TakeAway: Use data visualization and infographics to make your point more persuasively.
