“Such a good appreciation of expertise is a bit forgotten today,” says Ohukainen. - I do not defend any blind authority, but it is worth remembering that some people produce or process health information for their work. For the most part, they are well-meaning people without secret motives or conspiracies." translated from Finnish: "– Sellainen terve asiantuntijuuden arvostus on vähän ehkä unohtunut nykypäivänä, Ohukainen sanoo. – En puolusta mitään sokeaa auktoriteettiuskoa, mutta kannattaa muistaa, että jotkut tuottavat tai käsittelevät terveystietoa työkseen. Suurimmaksi osaksi he ovat hyvää tarkoittavia ihmisiä vailla salaisia motiiveja tai salaliittoja."

Climate change: ‘Fake news,’ real fallout


"More and more, what becomes influential online is not always written by journalists. This opening of the world of journalism to many more people, like PR people and bloggers, is bringing a lot of inaccurate information online" Vincent told DW. And journalists get it wrong too, misinterpreting or cherry-picking the data, or taking conclusions out of context. In cases like this, articles can be misleading even if they aren't deliberately manipulative.


Why climate change is the easiest news to fake


"Climate Feedback is a voluntary initiative of well-known and respected scientists reviewing climate change articles for accuracy, whose first work came in 2015. Among the articles reviewed: The Wall Street Journal op-ed on rising sea levels, which was described as “grossly” misleading to readers; and, on the other side, a highly cited New York Magazine article that the reviewing scientists said exaggerated how bad climate change could get."

The Wall Street Journal Still Treats Climate Change as “Opinion”
