Magazines Canada commissioned a whitepaper to explore the disinformation threats confronting Canadian magazines and the opportunities to insulate the industry. The resulting whitepaper, You Cannot Afford to Ignore the Disinformation Crisis: A Call to Action for Canadian Magazines, discusses how disinformation is manifesting in Canada, responses to it and opportunities for magazines to respond creatively. The whitepaper offers six key recommendations for action including a focus on strengthening research and verification capabilities, improving trust in magazine brands and collaborating in the fight back. The lead author is award-winning Australian journalist Alice Matthews and secondary author is Dr. Julie Posetti, Global Director of Research for the International Center For Journalists (ICFJ) based in Oxford.
This whitepaper is part of the Age of Disinformation project. View all resources in this series.
