How to Explain Disinformation

We now live in a world with increasing disinformation and misinformation. Nations, organizations, and individuals are using the media to spread false information that's designed to cause confusion and mistrust. While it's difficult to stop them, we can become more informed and help one another understand the phenomenon, how to detect it, and avoid it.

That's why we made a video that explains disinformation in about three minutes. The video is a fictional story of how one town uses disinformation to influence the other town. It provides a clear example that applies to today's environment.
