Between lawsuits, threats & difficulty doing research, both elections officials and researchers studying misinformation say their jobs are becoming more difficult — and it's not set to get better before the 2024 presidential vote.

This episode: political correspondents Susan Davis & Sarah McCammon, voting correspondent Miles Parks, and disinformation correspondent Shannon Bond.
