In "The Digital Maginot Line", Mozilla fellow and disinformation expert Renée DiResta argues that perpetrators of information warfare have shifted from "targeting infrastructure to targeting the minds of civilians." In this week's episode, Renée joins Heather and Emily to talk about how governments and platforms are not doing enough to address this shift. In light of recent debates about the ethics of covering the Christchurch massacre, we talk about best practices for journalists working in an era of democratized propaganda and rampant misinformation.
