How to Lose the Information War with Nina Jankowicz

In 2016, disinformation from foreign sources like Russia had a devastating effect on our domestic politics, and we’re still paying the price. They’re not stopping in 2020, and their tactics are expanding. It’s so important to understand what’s happening and what we can do about it, so we’ve invited Nina Jankowicz on the show.

Nina is the Disinformation Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. She’s also the author of the new book “How to Lose the Information War: Russia, Fake News, and The Future of Conflict.”

Transcript – Alyssa Milano Sorry Not Sorry Ep 68 Nina Jankowicz.
