Getting the Facts Out - Announcing "FACT SQUAD"
September 6, 2001
PFIR has now set up a structure that we hope can provide assistance in
filling this fact gap. We've created "Fact Squad" -- its home page,
which describes the project in more detail, is at:
Fact Squad is oriented specifically towards folks who need straightforward,
direct, and largely "jargon-free" information about these topics. It is a
coordinated resource for media, researchers, or anyone else -- cutting
through the hype and getting to the facts.
Fact Squad by itself obviously cannot be the complete solution to the
long-festering and worsening problems of manipulated information and
propaganda relating to technical issues and their impact on society.
But we think it's potentially an important step in the right direction.
