How is disinformation strategically disseminated online?
Lena Frischlich was interviewed by tagesschau presenter Constantin Schreiber for the DLM symposium 2021, “(Dis)information: Media and social networks in the super election year”. The interview addressed disinformation, the role of alternative news, and what to expect in view of this year’s German federal election in September. Prior to Lena Frischlich, Wolfgang Schäuble, President of the German Bundestag held a keynote speech on the “Opportunities and risks of new means of communication for the public and representative democracy”. Other high-ranking guests were Věra Jourová, European Commission Vice-President of for Values and Transparency and Dr. Tobias Schmid, Director of the Media Authority of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The DLM is the Director’s Conference of the State Media Authorities (Direktorenkonferenz der Landesmedienanstalten) which is part of die medienanstalten, the umbrella brand of the 14 Media Authorities in Germany.
