Journalists can attend a webinar on “Facts in a Time of Fiction: Reporting the truth amid lies and disinformation.”
The webinar on reporting the truth within lies and disinformation will hold on June 10, 2022 at 11:30 AM Eastern Time.
New York Times writer and author, Elizabeth Williamson, will share her reporting and research process, along with insights she gained as she connected the dots on how conspiracy theories grow.
Participants will learn to:
– Identify how misinformation and political conspiracy theories have spread;
– Work with sensitivity and clarity while reporting on conspiracy theories;
– Pre-bunk conspiracy theories through early reporting;
– Use trauma-informed reporting methods while working with people suffering tragedy; and
– Organise reporting and deep research to craft a long-form narrative.
