Lesson 6 is the first of two lessons devoted to manipulative content on the media, mainly online. It covers the three main types of manipulative content – disinformation, misinformation and malinformation, and discusses manipulative headlines and images, as well as the basics on how to verify them, using a real image that went viral on social media in the Baltics. It also introduces more complex types of visual manipulation – deepfakes and cheapfakes, and again offers tips on how to unmask them. It corresponds to Unit 4 Part A and B.
