“News you don’t believe”: User perspectives on f*ke news and misinformation | Shorenstein Center

May 5 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Users’ perspectives on what f*ke news and misinformation is and isn’t, who drives it, and where people say they see it are important for understanding the scale and scope of public concern, and how this corresponds with research insights and aligns with proposed responses to these problems, as well as for the credibility and even effect of responses. In this presentation, Professor Rasmus Kleis Nielsen, Director of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, will use survey data and focus group material from Reuters Institute research to present an overview of user perspectives on “fake news” and misinformation more broadly, and identify some commonalities and differences between how, respectively, the public, researchers, and policymakers talk about these problems.
