27 May 2019

How is online information handled in the post-truth era?

The passing of the legislation on online falsehoods in Singapore has given rise to much interest in the area of online news. In this month’s display, we bring you a selection of ebooks on the topic of social media and news in an era of post-truth. In these books we cover topics such as the impact of Trump’s war on fake news, the public interests and private rights of social media and what can we do as individuals to combat the spread of fake news.
