Just the Facts 2010: E-mails

This episode looks at our old, familiar nemesis: chain e-mails.

In this week’s webisode, our second since rebooting the vidcast, host Christine Nieves looks at some false chain e-mails about Michelle Obama and Sarah Palin. We first wrote about them during the 2008 presidential election, but the lessons in debunking are timeless. We use them as examples to review some of the red flags to look for when receiving a chain e-mail.
