Video conference: "Fake News and Social Media: the New Propaganda"
Here’s a video of a panel on “Fake News and Social Media: The New Propaganda” at DraginCon in Atlanta on Nov. 19, 2017.
Speakers were Amie Spetanovich, Blair B. Chintella (moderator), Gennie Gebhart, William C. Nevin, and K’Tech.
Anie adds that Google got rid of the “objective search results icon” recently.
There was also discussion on whether “truth” exists in consumers’ minds.
Vox has an interview by Sean Illing of author David Patrikarokas (“War in 140 Characters”) that examines whether individual bloggers really change the world and challenge governments, as illustrated by the work of Eliot Higgins, a gamer who exposed Russia’s complicity with the Malaysia Flight 17 crash.
