Media analysts expose ‘problematic’ election-related posts

“As journalists we’ve all dealt with misinformation and disinformation — that’s part of our job,” moderator Pilar Marrero prefaced her opening to discuss what she describes as proliferation “never like we’re seeing today.”

Marrero is among National Conference on Citizenship fellows she said are “knee-deep” in a program exploring the very subject.

In collaboration with EMS, Algorithmic Transparency at National Conference on Citizenship is “looking at how ethnic media are impacted by disinformation often overlooked by the mainstream media,” program director Cameron Hickey said. His presentation, “Understanding and Identifying Problematic Content,” scrutinized social media trends, focusing on the census, the elections and the pandemic.
