Daniel Dennett on Misinformation - Dictionary of Arguments
Brockman I 45
Misinformation/Dennett: One of the disturbing lessons of recent experience is that the task of destroying a reputation for credibility is much less expensive than the task of protecting such a reputation.) [Norbert] Wiener saw the phenomenon at its most general: “[I]n the long run, there is no distinction between arming ourselves and arming our enemies.”(1) The information age is also the dysinformation age.
