Richard Stengel - Information Wars: How We Lost the Global Battle Against Disinformation and What We Can Do about It

Upcoming Event
Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In this chilling first-hand account, Stengel, former editor of Time, draws on his experience as Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs from 2013 to 2016 to illuminate the global rise of disinformation. Starting with the Obama administration’s struggle to combat ISIS’s messages, then moving to a detailed look at Russian interference in the 2016 elections and Trump’s weaponizing of the alienation many Americans have felt, Stengel outlines the challenges involved in exposing and defusing disinformation, charts how governments are increasingly creating their own false narratives, and shows how this surge of falsehoods is impacting the world.
