Please join the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, in association with the Democracy Fund and the News Integrity Initiative, for this special luncheon event.
What do you do when manipulative actors on social media try to spread inaccurate content around breaking news events? What do we actually know about how disinformation is being spread on tech platforms – and affecting the attitudes and behaviors of people at the ballot boxes and in the streets? Attendees will leave this luncheon session armed with practical insights on what journalists and newsroom leaders can do to spot and stop digital disinformation; the latest facts about the spread and impact of digital disinformation; and new contacts and resources from research organizations and civil society.
