Please join our last Digital Irish event before the summer break on Thursday, June 16th from 6pm at the Irish Consulate, where we are delighted to host a special panel with Glamour's Samantha Barry, Newswhip's Paul Quigley and Malachy Browne from the New York Times, moderated by Conde Nast's Rachel Quigley.
The problem of misinformation — and the right approach to it for regulators and social media platforms — is turning into one of the most divisive political issues of the 2020s. Every major news story brings a swarm of counter stories — from covid to the capitol riot, the Ukraine invasion to vaccines. Can measures like the Disinformation Governance Board (suspended after just three weeks) and the Digital Services Act actually foster much-needed transparency? Or will the rising power of deep fake video and niche platforms see us all disappearing into our own "truths"? All this and more will be discussed by our expert panel.
