Fake news

Is identity part of Information? Does accuracy matter?

“Senators’ Identities Misused On Site,” The Wall Street Journal, May 23, 2018 A2.  People apparently spoofed the names of two US Senators when making comments on an FCC website seeking views on net neutrality.  Apparently, nearly 8,000 other people made the same complaint.

Can you trust what you read on the Internet?  When you have a website for collecting comments, how do you make sure that the people are who they say they are?  What controls do you have in place?  Are they adequate?
