Episode 38: Media, Disinformation, Hoaxes
Disinformation, political discord, anti-vaccination, distrust - none of these is new and none of these is specific to the U.S. We see them all around the globe.
What role does the media play in disseminating disinformation and in combating its effects?
This month I am joined by Santi Indra Astuti, lecturer in the faculty of communication science in the Department of Journalism at Bandung Islamic University (UNISBA), Bandung City, Indonesia and cofounder of Mafindo, a non-profit dedicated to combating hoaxes and disinformation, and Dr. Richard Lee, associate professor, Jandoli School of Communication, co-editor TAPinto Greater Olean, and director, Jandoli Institute.
This episode is the debut of my new monthly format. I take a look at what’s real and what is not. What is true and what is false. Come along on this journey with me.
