Project Offers Tools To Spot Disinformation In Media

University of Oregon

It’s hard to tell sometimes what is true and what isn’t in this age of misinformation and news manipulation. As media consumers, we have to be a little more careful about what to believe.

Dr. Claire Wardle will speak on “Disinformation in the 2020 Presidential Election” on Monday, at the University of Oregon. She’s founder of a project called First Draft.  Damian Radcliffe is Carolyn S. Chambers Professor of Journalism at the University of Oregon.  He spoke with KLCC's Rachael McDonald about the project.

The talk on “Disinformation in the 2020 Presidential Election” is Monday evening at 6:30 at the U of O Knight Library.
