Misinformation is spreading, but how badly?
Truth Duel created the Misinformation Index (MI) to give to the world an accurate picture on how badly misinformation is spreading. The MI is based on people’s beliefs around a certain topic, irrespective of the facts around said topic.
For example, if an article comes out saying that Peter O’Dribble has allegedly made racist comments, and people cannot agree on whether that is true or not, then the MI rises. The MI does not take into consideration whether Peter O’Dribble indeed made such comment and if it can be classified as racist, but only whether people believe it or not.
Normally, sudden changes in the Misinformation Index can be tracked to a declaration or important event of some well known person around a hot issue, mainly politics and celebrity gossip. The MI is computed by the votes people make on Truth Duel every day.
