Times technology columnist Kevin Ross on Tuesday sounded the alarm about the popularity of right-wing QiAon conspiracy theorists, claiming electoral fraud was ahead of the Capitol Hill riot by President Trump on January 6, and called the “baseless theory” that COVID – 19 was manufactured in a Chinese laboratory. “
“The messy, chaotic information ecosystem that produces these misguided beliefs does not jeopardize some lofty ideal of national unity. It actively generates our greatest national problems, and tries to solve them. Produces more work for the naysayers, ”Ros wrote. “And this raises an important question for the Biden administration: how do you unite a country in which millions have chosen to create their own version of reality?”

“I have spent the last several years reporting on our national reality crisis, and I worry that until the Biden administration cures conspiracy theories and disintegration, unless they are immediate threats, our parallel universe will only move forward.

Rouge also shared a suggestion from Stanford Internet Observatory “Disinformation Researcher” Renee DiResta, who said the CDC and FEC could establish procedures to counter misinformation about coronoviruses and election fraud.
