Journalism, "Fake News" and Disinformation - Handbook for Journalism Education and Training (available in Thai and Bahasa Indonesia)

Journalism, "Fake News" and Disinformation - Handbook for Journalism Education and Training (available in Thai and Bahasa Indonesia)

For those directly involved in empowering journalists and student journalists, this handbook  provides a framework for inquiry, and lessons to help navigate the increasingly murky information environment. It examines the deployment of ‘fake news’ as a term to discredit journalism, and sets out an alternative framework covering disinformation and misinformation, and (to a lesser extent) mal-information and emotive propaganda. The lessons are contextual, theoretical and in the case of digital verification, extremely practical. The curriculum falls into two distinct parts: the first three modules frame the problem and give it context, while the last four focus on responses to ‘information disorder’ and its consequences.
