Stand with the Facts: Bots, Trolls & Your Vote
March 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
In this social media era, how we share information and what we share is changing – and with this change we’ve seen a rise in the spread of misinformation, disinformation and other forms of manipulation which not only mislead and create divisions, but also diminish trust in democratic institutions such as science and journalism. Misinformation is everywhere. From deep fakes to false stories, what will it mean for voters in 2020? And how can you spot it and stop it?
Join KUOW’s All Things Considered host Kim Malcolm and a panel of experts, including Washington’s Secretary of State, Kim Wyman and GeekWire Civic Editor, Monica Nickelsburg – as they explore these questions as well as what’s being done by industry, government and other institutions to confront the spread of misinformation and what you can do. This event is free and open to the public.
