New Resource Series to Help Magazines Combat Disinformation and Misinformation

In uncertain times, being prepared against disinformation matters more than ever. The digital ecosystem is populated with thousands of pieces of content each day, and it’s up to us as magazine professionals to seek the truth of a statement, an image or a source, and find evidence to back it up.

“The Age of Disinformation” is a new resource series from Magazines Canada that identifies successful tools, strategies and international best practices to combat disinformation and misinformation, equipping the Canadian magazine industry to promote its trusted-ness to audiences and advertisers across the country.

This resource series aims to promote digital literacy and help build critical thinking skills and preparedness against online disinformation and other online harms. To that end, Magazines Canada engaged international experts to write and present webinars, Hotsheets, whitepapers and case studies to help you identify and debunk fake news and verify information and written and visual content, and to give you the practical strategies you need to combat disinformation.

You’ll find plenty of practical tools, tips, take-aways and solid analysis on disinformation for Canadian magazine professionals. View the Age of Disinformation resource series to learn more.
