Debunking – fake cooking videos

 

I learnt a new word this week, disinformation. I had of course heard of misinformation before but there is an important difference between these two words. While both of them communicate something that is not true, misinformation is not done deliberately. For example someone who does not have all the facts straight may misinform people, while thinking what they are saying is accurate. However with disinformation the person knows full well what they are publicly communicating is not correct, but they do so anyway for their own gain. It appears that disinformation about cooking and DIY’s is a great way to make money on youtube. A few people are starting to worry about these channels for more than cooking, watch the video to see what all the fuss about.

On a different note COVID-19 is creating havoc all over the world. I pray for your safety and wisdom for governments around the world at this time.

    Your videos are great!!! I love the debunking ones where you find out how things would actually happen. I do watch 5 minute crafts but I have never tried anything I have just watched for fun.

    I want to thank you for putting out this video, it was quite informative, and very needed in our time. Being older, I don’t do social media, however what you posted was what I had a hunch was being done. I wish I had contacts with the younger generation, i would pass this onto them.
    I always enjoy your video’s, although I don’t have the talent that you have with food, I sure enjoy watching them, and am grateful for your debunking the fake cooking videos, (those I learn a lot from). Dave.

    • Thanks David
