"Paradoxically, in this age of online disinformation, facts are easier to come by than ever,” Eliot Higgins tells us. He’s the CEO of Bellingcat, a kind of grassroots intelligence agency that he founded almost by accident as an unemployed college dropout, spending too much time online. His new book, just published, offers some hope that ordinary people, as well as the media, can judge events based on documented facts, not just wild assertions. What’s more, they can document those facts themselves.
Singh says the resettlement program needs to be expanded.
