ABSTRACT

How Are Platforms Responding to This Pandemic? What Platforms Are Doing to Tackle Rampant Misinformation   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Given the enormous role they now play in distributing news and information, it is important that the major technology platforms help consumers navigate between fact and fiction, between helpful and harmful information distributed on the internet. The quality of information available at the onset of the coronavirus epidemic, it's not an exaggeration to say, became a matter of life and death. We wanted to know: are the digital platforms doing their part to help us work through the difficulties engendered by the Coronavirus crisis? Are they setting a new standard of corporate behavior to prevent the dangerous flow of disinformation, or falling down on the job? And perhaps most importantly, what should our expectations be after the pandemic is over?"
