Why misinformation is like ‘wildfire’ after tragedies like Las Vegas shooting
Las Vegas Sun 10-04-17
Paul Levinson, a professor of communications and media studies at Fordham University, echoed the thought in an emailed statement: “It’s not so much that people are inclined to believe misinformation in the wake of a tragedy, it’s that people are understandably hungry for any information.

There’s no solution for this, except getting truthful information out as soon and frequently as possible.”
