Day 097 – Can curiosity help identify fake news?

How much curiosity will be able to help when it comes to identifying “fake news” will, I hope, be seen. One thing that struck me reading this article from the New York Times (link below) was that when it comes to understanding the “ideological frameworks” Malik writes about in the article, the Ladder of Inference and the process of Inquiry can help. It can help us understand how someone else sees the world, that is, how they use facts to come up with their way of looking at things.
