It’s never as simple as “fact is to fiction as Truth is to Falsehood” because history is not exactly like non-fiction. Novelty can be falsified, but is not identical to the falsifiable.
the spread of false information is essentially not due to bots that are programmed to disseminate inaccurate stories. Instead, false news speeds faster around Twitter due to people retweeting inaccurate news items.
