Unraveling Disinformation in Social Media

Unraveling Disinformation in Social Media

February 8, 2021 • Caitlin Mattingly

The last few years, and the most recent election cycle in particular, have brought forward unprecedented levels of misinformation and disinformation. This era of online disinformation bots, fake news, and interference from foreign adversaries has sown the seeds of division in our culture, much of it distributed and amplified on social media platforms.

Jane Lytvynenko is a senior reporter at Buzzfeed News, and the past several years she’s been focused on disinformation — where it comes from, who’s seeing it, how it works, and what might be done to defend against it. She joins us to share her insights.

This podcast was produced in partnership with the CyberWire.
