    • Science

This episode was a panel discussion on the theme of disinformation held at the Association of British Science Writers for their online UK Conference of Science Journalists in October 2020. We focused on the difference between misinformation and disinformation, the tactics of those spreading pseudoscientific theories such as climate change denial, anti-vaccine misinformation and pseudoscientific racism. Our panel looked at how science journalists can cover and combat this dangerous form of online abuse. The panel was hosted by science journalist Angela Saini and the panelists were Amil Khan, Ewan Birney, Michael Marshall and Mike Wendling.
