    Session 11: Misinformation, Journalism and Platforms

    Location: 
    Grand Ballroom

    News that are verified, contrasted and produced by professional media outlets continue to be lost in an information chaos where misinformation spreads quickly and massively. From the United States to Brazil, from Europe to Mexico, from the Philippines to the United Kingdom, political leaders take advantage of this disorder and voluntarily erase the lines between journalism and misinformation to impose their agendas and ambitions, discrediting media companies and increasingly polarizing societies. What efforts are being made to face this situation? What measures are companies like Facebook, WhatsApp, Google and Twitter taking to prevent their platforms from being used to spread false or misleading information? What are the latest means and tools media companies have at hand to tackle this issue?
