I just saw a video on youtube: "La verdad del corona virus" that left me with my hair standing on end

Is it a fake new or does it demonstrate that the human being is capable of the greatest monstrosities and lies?

This is why I refuse to watch any videos related to current events that are not published by a reputable source.

I've already seen a few articles indicating how misinformation being spread through social media is hampering the WHO and other organizations' abilities to resolve this crisis and we all need to do our part in NOT furthering the spread of misinformation.

Dear Kiron
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

How many times have we been manipulated by what you consider to be "credible sources"?
Luis, I agree with Kiron, social media spread easily false information "Fake News". I have not seen that video probably part of the conspiration theory. Social media are mostly not control/moderated, you can find videos on the fact that earth is flat, giant human bones where found, there are valuable things bury under thousand of questionable videos.

Dear Vincent
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

How many times have social media alerted us to real situations?

Was it social media that drew attention to the corona virus outbreak in China?

Are we living again in a period in which the post-truth reigns?

This is why we need to find more than one credible source, ideally representing different schools of thought - if there is alignment across what they all say, then one might believe that to be the truth...
We are stepping into an age where "Fake news" are becoming very common but dangerous part of e-life. As managers, there is a need for emphasis on a responsibility to spend couple of minutes to fact check the content and report to the publisher or add a comment with the reference to fact whichever possible.

In case unable to confirm the fact, its better not to re-tweet or share/refer so that our part of not spreading the "unknown" is prevented.

Dear Rajesh
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

It is really an important topic (news and information sources) about an important news (coronavirus)

As you can see, I raised the hypothesis of being a fake new

Luis,

Social media can alert us of many things, but there are also may false alarm. It is like the story where someone cries wolf so many times that the real call doesn't get an answer.

Is some controlling country social media is the alternative, now a day.

Information is easily available in most developed countries and believes to be true. That, we don't question the truth, the source and don't search ourselves! People in controlling countries have learn to do that long ago, before social media.

I totally agree with Kiron and my other fellow colleagues. In fact, I don't watch news at all, be it from reliable resources or not. I just take care as much as I can but lets be realistic: How much care you can take ? If you listen to everyone this means you have to stay home 24/07.

Luis,
I didn't see the video, and as other team members I pass.

When as was a teenager my parents own a small shop that sold newspapers, so every day early in the morning or at night I took one of each (in Spanish, English, and French)...I realized that the same topic was explained in big headlines in a different way:

The bottle is white
The big bottle is white
The bottle owned by this party is white
Is that bottle grey?

Since then, I don't believe one unique source, I read news (now without my fingers getting black), same new from different sources and I build my own opinion.

Dear Mayte
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

Interesting the situation reported regarding the newspapers and the way they give the news

Interesting what you wrote: "Since then, I don't believe one unique source, I read news (now without my fingers getting black), same new from different sources and I build my own opinion"

In this case, we are talking about a news source that, apparently, did not want to see :-)

Mayte,

It is so true, what is also true is that they don't always tell the same story. Or at least with a different point of view. I can see that a lot here in Canada. The same event reported in a different region, a different language results in different stories.
