Our splintered mediasphere is fertile grounds for misinformation, lies and propaganda. And the right shamelessly embraces every form of deception.

The right’s viral misinformation campaign on Afghanistan

The U.S. military says it did not leave any military dogs behind in Afghanistan. (It appears that about 50 contract dogs might have been left behind.)

A man hanging from a helicopter was not being killed by the Taliban; fact-checkers said it appears he was trying to place a Taliban flag on a building.

Biden did not skip a ceremony for the final 13 Americans killed in Afghanistan.

And the Taliban did not seize $80 billion in American weapons and gear from the war (though it’s estimated they did salvage billions worth of gear).
