AP launches ‘misinformation team’ to expose false info

Amanda Seitz, fact check reporter, Chicago, David Klepper, election misinformation reporter, East Desk; Danica Kirka, reporter, London, members of AP’s first misinformation beat team focusing on explaining falsehoods, propaganda and conspiracy theories while exposing the creators of this material and their techniques for dissemination. The team launched with two strong international stories – one exposing a propaganda campaign around the Turkish invasion into northern Syria, the other providing a deep look at how tech companies are grappling with the threat of online misinformation ahead of December’s UK election.
