Must read

Times subscribers can R.S.V.P. for this free event on Wednesday, May 26 at 7 p.m. Eastern, 4 p.m. Pacific.

It spreads through social media and message boards. Through television pundits and talk radio. And in daily conversations, in every corner of the world. Disinformation can change minds and fuel movements. But is it an unstoppable force? How can we resist a torrent of falsehoods and distortions?

Join comedian Sarah Silverman and Times reporters Kevin Roose, Sheera Frenkel and Davey Alba as they untangle the roots of disinformation, and the effects it has on our world.

We’ll hear from people who emerged from radicalization, including Caolan Robertson and Caleb Cain, who was profiled in the recent Times podcast “Rabbit Hole”. And we’ll analyze how a few brave readers interact with news on social media — with help from David Rand, a professor of management and cognitive science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (Want to participate in this segment? You can find all the details after you register.)
