[VIRTUAL] Disinformation Series Part 1: Media

Date: April 6, 2021
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

A study from Cybersecurity For Democracy found that far-right accounts known for spreading misinformation are not only thriving on Facebook, they're actually more successful than other kinds of accounts at getting likes, shares, and other forms of user engagement.

Join us April 6th for Part 1 of our Series as we focus on disinformation in the press and media.

We will discuss:

  • What is the difference between disinformation and misinformation?
  • How and why do they spread so rapidly, and what can we do to combat that?

We have invited local media professionals to join us to get to the bottom of why disinformation is so popular, how they guard against it, and how we can recognize it and keep from spreading it.
