The big picture: Misinformation and fake news won’t go away with the next generation, experts said. But it will be far better understood.
- Most misinformation is just “influence and agenda-driven communications that older generations don’t understand,” Jonathon Morgan, CEO of AI software company Yonder, told Axios.
- Boomers, Gen Xers and even some millennials often don’t know how this kind of information gets into their feeds. “They feel duped,” Morgan said, “And because they feel duped, they label it as misinformation and disinformation.”
