Fake News! Donald Trump’s Twitter catch phrase.
What is fake news, where does it come from, and why are so many people taken in by it? Luke Harding, the Guardian’s former Moscow Correspondent and author of Collusion, and Michael Goldfarb, of FRDH podcast, talk to Guardian columnist Suzanne Moore how America and Britain’s news media ecosystem was polluted. Just how much did Russian bots infecting social media influence American voters? How are traditional sources of news: newspapers and broadcast affected by fakery? How can we learn to immediately recognize a lie and inoculate ourselves against spreading it?Buy tickets
