Debates on disinformation and misinformation related to COVID-19 have dominated discussions in the media industry, but what specific actions can we take to tackle the spread of false or misleading information? What tools should we use and how can we find and motivate the people who will do the monitoring and fact-checking? What strategies could be employed to distribute the debunked information to a broader audience?
Join Rasťo Kužel of the Slovak organization MEMO 98, one of Central Europe’s leading experts on traditional and social media monitoring, for a practical webinar on how to set up a COVID infodemic monitoring system. He will share honest lessons learned from the Slovak multi-actor project; you will learn about the proper set up of keywords, the tools available, and much more.
This event is a follow-up to our initial webinar in this series: How to Create a Fact-Checking Initiative From Scratch - you can watch the recording here: https://youtu.be/RMzYuA9xEpE
