Doctor Tripodi,

Thank you for the informative essay, and particularly inclusion of the larger piece, by Bulger and Davison.

Truth is often illusive, especially if there is no desire on the part of media consumers to discern truth from fiction, or when truth may risk altering one’s beliefs. One of my favorite expressions is: “We’ve already made up our minds. Don’t confuse us with the facts…”

And, not surprisingly, social-media platforms operate solely in the interest of: “Will it make money?” Truth has no relevance.
