Description

How does a fact become a misconception? Dig into the world of misinformation to see how facts can become distorted and misleading.

--

In 1901, David Hnig published research that led to what we know today as the taste map: an illustration that divides the tongue into four separate areas. It has since been published in textbooks and newspapers. There is just one problem: the map is wrong. So how do misconceptions like this spread, and what makes a fake fact so easy to believe? Joseph Isaac dives into the world of misinformation.
