Dealing with Disinformation: Are Societies Defenseless Against Disinformation?

December 12, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

In a complex and uncertain environment, disinformation poses a real danger to our societies. Consumers of information can intentionally or unintentionally create news bubbles that shape how they see the world. Even when fact-checkers and journalists work to debunk false narratives and inform the public about the facts – there are a host of issues where information is manipulated. With the war in Ukraine, open conflict in the Middle East, concerns about climate change and public health, and now a surge in antisemitism, disinformation is thriving. But, are we defenseless against disinformation?

Join the American Council on Germany and the German Consulate General New York for the third installment of the virtual series titled “Dealing with Disinformation.” Award-winning New York Times journalist Tiffany Hsu and Correctiv Co-Founder and Publisher David Schraven will join us for an online event on Tuesday, December 12, at 11 am ET to discuss ways in which we can meet the challenges of disinformation.

Tiffany Hsu is an award-winning reporter focusing on dis/misinformation for The New York Times. She previously covered media and marketing. Earlier in her career, she covered the California economy at The Los Angeles Times. She has also covered retail, restaurants, and alternative energy. Ms. Hsu is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and holds an MBA and an MA in Journalism from Columbia University.

David Schraven is a Co-Founder of Correctiv, where he now leads the investigative newsroom as its publisher. Earlier in his career, he wrote for well-known German media outlets, such as the taz, the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the Welt-Group, and the Blog Ruhrbarone, where he was also a co-founder. When the Funke-Group was still the WAZ-Group, he was responsible for the investigative department there. He has received multiple awards for his work.
