Neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel Levitin explains that although we may expect newspapers, the government and Wikipedia to be factually correct, so often aren’t. He encourages us to think critically about the words and numbers we encounter and discourages us from passively accepting information, repeating it, and making decisions based on it.
