  • Misinformation And Disinformation: What's The Difference?

    On social media, it's frighteningly easy to unwittingly spread both misinformation and disinformation. But which is which? According to Business Insider, misinformation is just information that's incorrect, false, or wrong. For example, the idea that 5G networks cause cancer. People often post and forward articles making such claims, even though it's been proven that 5G signals cannot harm the body. Disinformation, on the other hand, is just lies that are deliberately placed in the media to deceive others. Unsubstantiated rumors, gossip, or claims of grand conspiracy can also count as pieces of disinformation. Misinformation can turn into disinformation when it's still shared by individuals or groups who spread it to cast doubt or stir divisiveness.

  • FBI To Capitol Rioters: We Know Who You Are And We're Coming To Find You

    Following the violent attack on the US Capitol, federal officials launched the most extensive counterterrorism probe since September 11, 2001.

Wray says the agency is monitoring 'extensive' online chatter about future protests and warned the men and women who wreaked havoc on the Capitol.

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d’avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu’en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l’arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. “Le train est plein”, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
