how fake news as word of the year assosiates with human rights activist

The word “Fake News,” chosen by the well–known Collins Dictionary as the word of the year, has caused trouble for human rights activists around the world.

The decision itself does not look bad, but in reality, it portrays the ubiquity of the growing rate of fake news creating serious troubles for the human rights movements since the time number of stories has blurred the lines between fact and fiction, truth, and lies.

However, neuroscientists have warned that the facts these days are not really convincing, and the stories may not come up with the facts and figures all the time.

The rise in ignorance of facts is a genuine problem when it comes to the stories of human rights activists around the world.

When it comes to the encounter of the human rights activist around the world with the victims, they must have a commitment to be careful about fact-finding, to gather the evidence, the corroboration of details and to unveil the truth prevail justice to the society, he further added that.

But the issue is far broader and the people who deal with the fake news seek to make fact fungible and to provide the world noise of competing for hyper-partisan narratives where verdict does not make a difference and the truth at the end of the day comes from the allays of the troublemaker.

The well–known personalities, including politicians, have begun deploying “Fake News” as the smear on fact-finding by media personnel, human rights organizations, and prosecutors. While in the process, they usually seek to break the link between the evidence and accountability, and it makes it more problematic to make sure those who are answerable for their misdeeds.

Each and every single day, ordinary people or the people who are the victims put their lives at risk and tell the stories to the human rights activists for justice because they know that another option is only to keep themselves silent. On the other hand, if human rights activists and human rights watchdogs start tempering the facts, then ultimately, no one will have confidence in these so-called human rights that have been made for the stronger ones but not for the weaker ones.
