In this Headline's Learning Zone, we learnt about four actions people use to debunk conspiracy theories.
Can you remember what "debunk" means? It means to prove that something is not true.
Let's remind ourselves about those four actions...
Your challenge is to show the benefits and limitations of each through the comments below.
A benefit is something good whereas a limitation is something that might stop it being effective.
So, for example:
Action 2: Fact-checking websites
Benefit: It provides clear information about what's true and what's not and so people can check a story for themselves, whenever they want to.
Limitation: Their effectiveness relies on people going to the fact-checking websites themselves. There's no guarantee that lots of people will - particularly not those who believe a conspiracy theory.
Can you do show benefits and limitations at least two of the debunking actions? There's certainly lots of benefits and limitations for all of them.
Once you have given your benefits and limitations, look at other people's and "reply" with a solution to overcome the limitaiton. For example, a possible solution for the limitation above could be advertising fact-checking websites more commonly.
