This week on Matter of Fact, separating fact from fiction. We speak with Angie Holan of Politifact. Then, how our partisan biases filter which facts we accept. Soledad O’Brien speaks with Whitney Phillips from Syracuse University about how the combination of our own biases and social media can shape what we believe. Then, the West Coast is facing a deadly and record-breaking wildfire season. We document the families trying to piece their lives back together after Paradise, CA was destroying in the 2018 wildfires. Plus, former Olympic gymnast Chellsie Memmel shows us you’re never too old to chase your dreams.
