It's way easier to post fake news on social media and get a ton of clicks than it is to publish a fact check. So is fact-checking always the best way to fight misinformation? In this episode, we'll talk to Giovanni Luca Ciampaglia at the University of South Florida about how hoaxes and fact checks spread online. Then, we'll learn how Maldito Bulo founder Clara Jiménez Cruz is copying the format of misinformation to get more reach.
(Mis)informed is hosted by Daniel Funke and produced by Vanya Tsvetkova, an interactive learning producer at Poynter's News University. It was edited by Alexios Mantzarlis, with additional editing and creative direction from Alex Laughlin.
