Development of critical thinking, taking information from different sources and analyzing it
There is no one-size-fits-all solution for identifying fakes, as has already been said. But first of all, you need to look at who is spreading the news and secondly, what kind of reputation this person has. Thirdly, of course, you need to get information from different sources and understand who benefits from it at any given time. In any case, critical thinking one way or another should help in the fight against fakes — Vovan and Lexus, Prankers.
Given the situation, there is a lot less attention from the western media [to the pranksters Vovan and Lexus, – Ed.]. But we are still being targeted by the western media and, of course, when it is particularly beneficial to one of the parties — Vovan and Lexus, Prankers.
We are engaged in a constant, unceasing battle, facing a campaign of lies, slander and fakes of our nations. It is a campaign of manipulation, aggression, false and fake news, slander, editing, staging and media shows. We are facing these attacks together which are carried out and financed by the USA, the European Union, the enemies of humanity. They are trying, through this campaign of lies and slander, to shake the stability, security and peace of our countries. <...> It is important to strengthen our position, maintain our heroism in defence of the rights of our people, ensuring stability. Comrades, friends, before the challenges we face, we are confident that we will go forward always, we will be firm in our decision — Daniel Ortega, Media Coordinator, Communication and Citizenship Council of the Republic of Nicaragua.
