If you've been fooled by a viral photo or video out of Gaza in the past two months, you're far from alone. In fact you're in the company of journalists and media outlets as well, that's how fogged with mis and disinformation this conflict has become. You may not even know you were fooled, because the debunking of the information didn't travel nearly as far and wide as the initial report.
Why is Israel's invasion of Gaza more difficult to parse than even the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia? Why is it so hard to get on-the-ground reporting from inside the region? How does this problem keep getting worse and what can you do to protect yourself from incorrect information?
GUEST: Dr. Valerie Wirtschafter, fellow at the Brookings Institution in Foreign Policy, and the Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Technology Initiative.
