The number of governments and political parties using disinformation to manipulate public opinion is on the rise: a new report published by the Oxford Internet Institute suggests that 81 countries were involved in spreading "fake news" online in 2020 (there were just 28 in 2017). Worryingly, disinformation campaigns have also become increasingly professionalized. Previously, they were conducted by bots and government employees. Now, social-media influencers and public relation firms are hired to carry out the dirty work – making online disinformation harder to spot, and harder to stop. If you think disinformation only concerns countries like Russia, China or Brazil, you may be surprised: the list includes many European Union countries (Germany, Italy, Spain), the U.S., the U.K. and Australia. Are we also facing a pandemic of "fake news"?
