Former President Jimmy Carter says America needs to solve the problem of misinformation
America "urgently needs to solve the problem of disinformation, especially in social networks," says the 39th US President Jimmy Carter.
The New York Times published an article this week in which the former President expressed his opinion about the safety of information in social media.
"The United States needs to reform these platforms, and Americans need to develop the habit of looking for accurate information," the former White House host stressed.
The former White House host addressed to the nation in the frames of his op-ed warning to America. Carter said that the country need to take “immediate action” if it is going to keep from losing its “precious democracy.”
New from Jimmy Carter: “I now fear that what we have fought so hard to achieve globally — the right to free, fair elections, unhindered by strongman politicians who seek nothing more than to grow their own power — has become dangerously fragile at home.” https://t.co/E39Z0EYPV3— New York Times Opinion (@nytopinion) January 5, 2022
"Our great country stands on the edge of an open abyss. If we do not take immediate action, we really risk being drawn into a civil conflict, which is fraught with the collapse of our precious democracy. Americans should put aside their differences and cooperate with each other before it's too late," Carter said.

According to Carter, “Americans must set aside their differences and work together before it is too late.”
