 April Doss, chair of the Firm’s Cybersecurity and Privacy Practice, was interviewed by Tim Mak on the October 1, 2018 NPR Morning Edition. April comments that people need to be overly cautious as to whether their reading material could be potential “fake news.”

"There's been social science research demonstrating that, if I tell you some really outrageous proposition, something that’s clearly untrue, I tell you: 'You know what Tim, the sky is green today.' The first time I say it, you’re going to say, 'That’s ridiculous. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard of.' The next time I say it, you’re going to be more inclined to believe it. And by the third of fourth or fifth time, it starts sounding almost plausible," said April.
