Fighting False News: Strategies to Combat Digital Misinformation @ Knight TV Studio | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

In 2018 information travels instantaneously — including misinformation, disinformation, and fake news.

Increasingly, the public doesn’t know whom to trust, as politicians discredit traditional media, influencers give credence to false rumors and our own friends and family unknowingly spread untruths. Incorrect information can damage brands, complicate natural disasters and even sway elections.

“Fighting False News,” sponsored by National Digital Roundtable and the Newseum, will provide valuable insights and key strategies every communicator should know when it comes to false information online, including how corporations, nonprofits and governments are fighting back.

The panel features:

  • Anthony Shop, co-founder & chief strategy officer, social driver chairman, National Digital Roundtable
  • Monica Enqvist, head of public diplomacy, press and communications, Embassy of Sweden
  • Barbara McCormack, vice president of education, Freedom Forum Institute
  • Lauren Lawson-Zilai, senior director, public relations, Goodwill Industries International
  • Joe Khawly, news anchor, Alhurra TV
