Thank you for this. I’m researching fake news for my PhD and am thinking along the same lines as you. The narratives we tell ourselves about ourselves are based on what psychologists increasingly now realise are false or doctored memories. We create versions of ourselves in much the same way that the internet creates falsity, and in many ways the internet is holding a mirror up to us in the same way that literature and art have previously done in the past.
