The Australian public has been overwhelmed with news and information about COVID-19, from mainstream to social media.
Amid the waves of information, it can be difficult to spot the fake experts pushing coronavirus pseudoscience, the manipulated images and videos, or identify the agendas behind politicians’ bold claims.
The Institute is helping news consumers make sense of the noise. It’s providing support to RMIT University for RMIT ABC Fact Check, allowing it to commit additional resources to its efforts to tackle misinformation, disinformation and malinformation.
