What can we do to prevent such manipulation?

  1. Be aware of it, it’s much harder to spot compared to exaggerated news because it is supposed to come from reputable sources. But if you look carefully, you’ll realise that the sources referenced are unknown sources, there’s definitely something fishy going on.
  2. Hold off on sharing the story. Don’t share it if you smell a rat. ESPECIALLY when it enrages you.
  3. Look beneath the surface, look deeper, people don’t say things for no reason
