Fighting fakes on the India/China border
Remember when two nuclear powers led by twitchy ultra-nationalists at the brink of war used to be an epoch defining moment that would dominate world politics for decades? Ah, the good old days before coronavirus we guess. Nevertheless, there’s still good call to be nervous about what’s happening on the border between India and China since around 60 soldiers died in a face-off a couple of weeks ago. Why? Well, journos at Al-Jazeera take a look at satellite images of troop build-ups ahead of that clash, and the BBC has a list of misinformation that originates from social media, news media and state media in the region. Eep.
