from Ross Pomeroy at Real Clear Science:
With the advent of the Internet and social media, the average person is afforded unprecedented power to consume and spread information. But with great power, comes great responsibilities -- to be skeptical, to seek out facts and evidence, to restrict, or at least not aid, the spread of rumors. Of course, one also has the ability to completely ignore all those responsibilities. When that happens, you may discover that you're a purveyor of misinformation.
And if you're going to spread misinformation, you might as well do it right. To all the devout Natural News readers, anti-vaxxers, and alternative medicine scam artists out there, this guide's for you! If truth and logic is your thing, feel free to read these tips as well, then forget them, or better yet, do the exact opposite.
Embrace your biases.
Don't stop. Don't think.
Repeat, repeat, repeat!
Ignore the Fallout.
