Misinformation

The Good Information Podcast: Misinformation - is there still time to win the battle?

Are tools such as pre-bunking, strong legislation and public literacy enough to halt disinformation?

WHETHER COVID-19 VACCINES, the war in Ukraine, or any major election that has taken place in recent memory, misinformation has become a scourge at every turn.

Our priority in shining a spotlight on misinformation was to uncover the tactics used by bad actors and understand best practices for how disinformation can be dispelled, and ultimately, stopped.

This episode of The Good Information Project looks at strategies employed by the EU and independent fact-checkers, such as pre-bunking, aggressive social media legislation in the European Parliament, and building critical thinking skills at a society-wide level to aid in a fight against dishonest information.
