Native America Calling: Prepare for election misinformation
Monday, June 3, 2024

Prepare for election misinformation
Is there really a mass of Chinese immigrants forming an army within the United States?

Are there legions of ineligible voters deciding elections? Are the people you disagree with politically getting influenced by Russian agents?

News consumers can choose where they get their facts from — and increasingly those facts are in dispute. A new poll by the Media Insight Project finds 53% of those asked think news organizations will report inaccuracies or misinformation about the upcoming election.

Join Native America Calling to get some clues about what Native news consumers should look out for, and what news organizations could do to restore trust in their products.
