Election Security And Disinformation In 2020

Luis Villasmil

On this edition of River to River, host Ben Kieffer speaks with Iowa Public Radio’s Matt Sieren about identifying election disinformation online and on social media.

Later in the program, former military intelligence analyst, now University of Northern Iowa political scientist, Evan Renfro compares the cyber threats of 2016 with the ones we’re facing now and says Americans should “embrace patience like never before,” while waiting for election results.
