This week, NFCB hosts a webinar on fighting disinformation in a pandemic. Your audience looks to you for accurate information on a life-or-death subject like the coronavirus. Here’s the type of disinformation you can expect from social media and how to verify it and address it.
Our speakers is Aimee Rinehart. She is the deputy director of First Draft, where she managed Comprova, the Brazilian election project in 2018. She serves as project lead on First Draft initiatives and builds strategic partnerships with complementary organizations to support and enhance our work around the world. She started working online in 1996 and was a digital originator at The New York Times. She was an editor at the Wall Street Journal Europe in Brussels and upon her return to New York, worked in the communications departments at the American Civil Liberties Union, the Overseas Press Club of America and Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.
This webinar happens Wednesday, June 17, from 3-4 pm EST / 12-1 PST. Register free here to attend.
