NYT Asks Readers to Help Stem Disinformation

The New York Times posted a request for readers to help stem the spread of disinformation ahead of the midterm elections in November.

“As November’s midterm elections approach,” the post reads, “The New York Times is looking for examples of online ads, posts and texts that contain political disinformation or false claims and are being deliberately spread on internet platforms to try to influence local, statewide, and federal elections.”

In response, novelist and political pundit Andrew Klavan tweeted, “Just read your own paper!”
