Poor media literacy ‘making Turks vulnerable to fake news’


The low level of media literacy in Turkey has been making its people vulnerable to fake news, according to Şükrü Oktay Kılıç, a digital content strategist at verification platform teyit.org.

“One in two internet users say they are subjected to fake news. They are not resilient to fake news. In other words, they have difficulties in understanding fake news when they see one. That’s because media literacy is low in Turkey,” he told the Hürriyet Daily News in a recent interview.

It has been revealed recently that Turkey ranks first in a list of countries where people complain about completely made up stories. Tell us why this does not come as a surprise.
