National Security Distinguished Lecture: How Disinformation and News Silos Distort Thinking on National Security & Foreign Policy

Disinformation and news silos are exacerbating the poisonous political – and public – rhetoric that has infected even the relatively bipartisan sphere of national security and foreign policy. Viola Gienger, Washington Senior Editor of Just Security, will explore how the news environment and American society got to this point and where the trends seem to be going, including with the advent of artificial intelligence. Gienger will also address how civic and political leaders, the news media, and Americans can return to having civil and constructive discussions about national security and foreign policy.
