Organizing the Fight Against Misinformation

with Ferdi Özsoy, Program Manager, The Poynter Institute

‘Fake news’ has multiple definitions, which can be a problem. Ferdi Özsoy helps to highlight the main types of misinformation, and how individuals can be best equipped with consuming online content. As the Program Manager at the Poynter Institute, Ferdi joins the show today to distill the core principles that drive the success of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) – a unit of the Poynter Institute dedicated to bringing together fact-checkers worldwide.

The Poynter Institute is a non-profit journalism school and research organization located in St. Petersburg, Florida. Join our conversation as we explore the work they’re doing at the institute, the impact of globalised misinformation, the IFCN’s toolbox for fact-checkers – and garlic and vinegar.
