Hi Kev

How should society and the government combat the fake news/manufactured outrage threat from Murdoch's empire?

Personally I don't have much hope for the older generation (judging by Facebook commenters), but I think for the younger generations, statistics and research methods needs to be mandatory in high school (rather than being optional in the form of a Psychology elective).

Learning these skills in University has helped me tremendously during my research and day to day life. I feel it would equip future generations with analytical skills that (mostly) make them immune to bullshit and fear mongering.
