COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

.@ZebraFactCheck: indeed, those like @Mantzarlis are just trying to quash speech they don't like. They're Suede Denim bookburners. To help destroy their careers, point out to those who take them seriously how *non* liberal they are.

.@Marek_Miller: as "Google News Lab Teaching Fellow" I was just talking about those like you. If I search for "immigration" in Google News, are the results going to tell me the truth or try to lie to me? Bonus: is Wikipedia a credible source?

.@CraigSilverman: #Facebook trusting Politifact, @Mantzarlis, Snopes, etc. is like if we trusted Trump to determine what's #FakeNews or true
