Description

Did Obama really shake hands with the president of Iran? Is COVID-19 part of a secret plot to make a fortune by selling vaccines? Did Trump's lawyer plot with Russian spies to hack the Democrats? Are Fox and MSNBC reporting on the 2020 election from different planets?

Former New York Times reporter Scott Shane will go over recent case studies in online disinformation, using real images and video clips, and discuss how to separate truth from fabrication.

This online workshop on "Navigating the News in an Age of Disinformation" is hosted by the SNF Agora.
