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.
