Disinformation and Misogyny Online with Nina Jankowicz

Disinformation is overwhelming our culture. From politics to medicine, investments to history, we’re drowning in it, and so we’ve invited our friend Nina Jankowicz back to the show. Nina is the disinformation fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Institute and author of How to Lose the Information war. She’s the author of How to Lose the Information War: Russia, Fake News and the Future of Conflict and a recent article in Wired titled Online Harassment Toward Women Is Getting Even More Insidious.
