Note: This session is intended as a follow-on to Election 2020: Combating Misinformation, Disinformation & Deepfakes, which is scheduled for Thursday, Oct 08 at 12:15 PM EDT (UTC–4); anyone is welcome, but you'll find the most value if you're able to join both discussions sequentially. This session will not be available on-demand.

Each election cycle sees new tactics and technology used to misinform the public in the digital space. Join this high-level discussion on the dangers of disinformation and deepfakes to gain the tools and tactics you need to confront and push back on these attacks. This mini masterclass is led by Joan Donovan, Research Director, Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy.

This session is designed for:

  • Editors, reporters and producers working to get on top of the unceasing spread of disinformation and misinformation
  • Anyone who would like to better understand the state of play in disinfo and deepfakes
  • Journalists finding it difficult to work in a space suffused with bad faith actors

This session is generously supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
