Obama tackles disinformation after failing to 'fully appreciate' issue while president
Laura Edelson, Ph.D. candidate and co-founder of Cybersecurity for Democracy at NYU, gave input on former President Obama giving an hour long speech on disinformation. She sees Obama having a “net” positive effect, despite being seen as a partisan actor on the left, by elevating a sense of urgency. “We just need to get something done. And that just getting something done is so hard in this climate,” said Edelson.
