Information and data research specialist Andrea Malick investigates the problem of misinformation, specifically in relation to Covid-19 and the parallel pandemic of fake news, scaremongering, and mistrust that is propagated via social media. Andrea presents a number of solutions for managing misinformation, including more vigilant content stewardship and governance mechanisms. Aside from raising pertinent questions, Andrea also notes how tackling the dissemination of false information should not be viewed as an affront to freedom of expression, but rather as an extension of the existing measures that monitor hate speech and incitement to violence.Share this Article:
