People “doing their own research” is highly problematic and hurting the government’s pandemic response, CNN reports.
What’s the problem with “doing your own research”?https://t.co/1YiDqINuuZ
For most people, “doing your own research” means Googling, going on social media, or speaking to non-experts.
This will lead you down a rabbit hole of mis-/disinformation.
PS: Thanks, @brianstelter.
