Facts and Other Lies: Welcome to the Disinformation Age – with Ed Coper
How can we win our campaign narratives when the information landscape now favours falsehoods? Conspiracy theories, fake news, hyper-partisan abuse and hysteria generate massive amounts of engagement while the truth and facts are punished by social media algorithms. Understanding this new landscape, and how it takes advantage of the ways our brains are geared to work, is essential if we are to win back a shared reality, defeat harmful disinformation, and win our campaigns.
