Lesson 7 is the second lesson on manipulation in the media, primarily online. It discusses online bots and trolls and how to unmask them, what are the signs of artificially generated images, what questions to ask to evaluate if someone is really an expert and what is the importance of checking the primary source of information. The information in the lesson corresponds to the content on Unit 4 Part B.
