cyburban myths

Media stories about the net that have little basis in fact. Articles linking a surge of disinformation on the net and terrorism would be one example; stories about the rise of cybergangs would be another.

Historical perspective: This term coined by the EFF's Mike Goodwin in 1997; twenty years later it was all about fake news.
