We also need to be seeing it as so much more than communicating to funders. To me it’s about having clear goals that guide our decision making and that help us evaluate if we’re spending our limited resources in the most effective ways

Some of thoughts on fact-checking: 1) Think about a fact-check from the perspective of the person who believes a false claim. Acknowledge the kernel of truth or reason why some people might believe the claim.

Key points from keynote: - we need to be fact-checking smarter, thinking about who we’re communicating to, how&why - tackling misinfo at source & system level - importance of collaborating with others - improving access to reliable information is just as important

While people find some journalism valuable, it is clear they are not impressed by much of what they come across, and issues go well beyond trust. Just 51% see media as good at helping them understand the news. 42% think media do a good job holding the rich+powerful to account 6/7

People worry about online fakery, and over 1/4 say they've started relying on more reputable sources as a result (plus another 1/4 saying they've stopped using dubious sources). While this will help some publishers, often low trust in news underlines it will not help everyone 5/7

Read this! Widespread neglect of more recent studies since my paper w/. Key point: "while backfire may occur in some cases, the the evidence now suggests it is rare rather than the norm...generally debunking can make people’s beliefs in specific claims more accurate"

We particularly need more research on this outside the United States, where most of this research has been done. We will be working on this in the coming years!
