Journalism and the Pandemic: The Disinfodemic
How are journalists experiencing the COVID-19 ‘disinfodemic’ and working to counter it? Journalism is not just at risk of being swamped in what the World Health Organization (WHO) calls the 'infodemic'. It is also a target of, and a bulwark against what UNESCO calls a ‘disinfodemic’. So, what encounters are journalists, fact-checkers and other media workers having with mis/disinformation? What are the impacts of the ‘disinfodemic’ on their work? And how are news outlets working to counter the information pollution fueling the pandemic? ICFJ's Julie Posetti, the Tow Center's Emily Bell, Coda Story's Natalia Antelava, BuzzFeed's Jane Lytvynenko, Rappler's CEO and co-founder Maria Ressa, and Gilberto Scofield Jr., Director of Strategy and Business at Brazil's Lupa will tackle these questions in the final of this series of our Journalism and the Pandemic webinars.
