Look at religion, politics, pop culture. People believe what they want to believe. Are these teenagers really any worse than teenagers were 20 years ago?:
The report says that students did not verify sources, had poor understanding of how search engines work, and were not good at differentiating between propaganda and accurate information.
Is there anyone who can differentiate between propaganda and accurate information? Twas ever thus, dammit. Human ignorance and gullibility is just adapting to new technology, is all.
