We deal with #disinformation a lot here at the CIJ. From teaching how to spot it to discussing its impacts.

Here are a few useful links to useful resources and examples of how easy it is to spread disinformation and how hard it is to disprove it.

First meet @CraigSilverman media editor of @BuzzFeedNews. He specialises in covering and disproving dis- and misinformation. He also edited an excellent book on it. 👇🏿👇🏽👇🏻 https://twitter.com/CraigSilverman/status/1255106614236979206?s=20
