Description

Brexit and the Trump election have brought home to the West the dangers of disinformation and propaganda in the digital age. But the daily manipulation of the truth is an old story to journalists where stories are routinely sold to the highest bidder or spun by armies of government-backed trolls. Here are three reporters on the frontlines, from Craig Silverman's groundbreaking reports in Buzzfeed of fake news, to Chay Hofilena's heroic work at Rappler against Duterte's trolls in the Philippines, to Aniruddha Bahal's exposé at Cobrapost of Indian media taking payoffs.
