DISINFORMED: What Vanessa Guillen can teach us about disinformation
A few weeks ago, we spoke to Meghna Mahadevan, Chief Disinformation Defense Strategist at United We Dream, the country’s largest immigrant youth led organization, about how bad actors inflame existing tensions between communities to spread chaos and distrust.
The tragic death of Mexican American soldier Vanessa Guillen is a good example. On this ep, we’ll revisit her story and how it was used to fuel hateful distortions online.
