well rkwell, false informat turns out traveling six times faster than the truth. mit researchers said the average false story takes so hours to reach 1,500 users. it takes got 60 hours for true stories to do the same. what's interesting here is it's not bots that are responsible for all this, researchers say it's humans that are spreading the bogus stories. a producr at cnn shows us a
4:15 pm
so-year study, so they went into some serious depth on this issue. >> mit researchers looked at 20,000 stories and they looked at how many of these dubious stories are repeated. as you noted, the falsehoods traveled way faster than the truth. >> what does this tell you about human nature, because i think we were under the impression that there are these bots and they're spreading information around, it's not the bots, it's the humans. >> this was a 10-year study that ended in 2015, and we really have seen the rise of bottls in the last year or two, but we looked at what's causing all this false information to spread and it's people. and there were two big reasons that the researchers found. when you see the truth and you're inundated with it all day, you just kind of gloss past it. but if you see something interesting or something that
4:16 pm
evokes an emotional reaction, or you think oh, my gosh, i can't believe this is true, and you want to share it immediately, without taking a wait a minute, is this really true? >> it's like the ole story, if you see a sale or something that if seems too good to be true, it probably is. but do you think this evokes so much more emotion than facts? is what that causes people to hit retweet? >> you want to be first, and share something with your network. otherwise why are you on twitter. the tools make it super easy, you can just hit that retweet button. so you're probably doing it before you even think that you're doing it because you're just kind of like going through your feed and hitting buttons all day. it's super easy to share that information. and again, it is something that evokes an emotional reaction from you, where you say if
4:17 pm
you're scanning your headline and you're reading one headline after another, in this case, the study saw that a lot of the false information was about politics, when you see something that is really just wow, oh, my gosh, i can't believe this, i got to let everybody know, you hit the button. >> now that we know this, and the bot factor is another thing we need to add on top of it. what do we do about it now? >> well, there are, as an individual, think before you retweet, and know who the source of that news is and don't be fooled into thinking that you're retweeting from a legitimate source. at cnet, you think that maybe you're retweeting a legitimate source but you're not, so now what you're doing, take a second to check. and the other thing, from a platform perspective, as i mentioned, these tech companies have made it super easy for us
4:18 pm
to hit the retweet button. and they don't give us any way to get a clue of is >> so some responsibility on both sides? >> absolutely. >> thank you for coming in. it's no surprise that the majority of monuments across america are centered around men. but in honor of international women's day today, a santa clara county supervisor has announced her plan to give women their rightful place in history. >> reporter: it's spirit week at notre dame high school in san jose, and these students are tackling some of the topics that matter most of them. future leaders all engaged in the present. >> i personally am really
