Description


A Storyology 2017 event

Forget what you think you know about fake news. Our neighbours in Asia have been dealing with fake news, lies and propaganda for years. More recently, the same technology and social media platforms that have enabled political participation and social change have become a battleground for “weaponised” internet warriors to spread misinformation. And sometimes the perpetrators are governments themselves.

Our global panel will discuss how citizens, journalists and publishers are fighting back with fact-checking, verification, data-driven reporting and collaborations across borders.

SPEAKERS:

  • Maria Ressa, CEO, Rappler (Philippines)

  • Siddharth Varadarajan, founding editor, The Wire (India)

  • Matt Davis, videojournalist, ABC TV Foreign Correspondent

  • Dr Aim Sinpeng (panel chair), Department of Government and International Relations, the University of Sydney
