ASU KEDtalks: The Podcast


Defending Against Fake News

Season 4

There's an insidious threat that seeks to divide the nation and undermine our faith in democracy — disinformation.

Often referred to as "fake news", disinformation is the spread of false information with the willful intent to deceive. Scott Ruston, a research scientist with the Global Security Initiative at Arizona State University, studies why disinformation is believable, how it spreads and what we can do to defend ourselves against it.
