Big Policy Canvas Research Roadmap

[...] * Clearly transparency of policy making and overall trust can be negatively affected by fake news, disinformation and misinformation in general. In a more general sense disinformation can be defined as false information that is purposely spread to deceive people, while misinformation deals with false or misleading information (Lazer et al., 2018), but it also includes the bias that is inherent in news produced by humans with human biases. Lazer et al. (1094) define this most recent phenomenon as ‘fabricated information that mimics news media content in form but not in organizational process or intent.’
