Description

The COVID-19 crisis has generated a wave of misinformation that is undermining trust in the media and government institutions. Join us live as Sam Gill speaks with Jevin West of the University of Washington about the “infodemic” accompanying this public health emergency. West, who directs the Knight-supported Center for an Informed Public at UW, was described by Wired as one of “The Professors Who Call B******t on COVID-19 Misinformation.”
