During the final years of the Obama administration, Time editor and Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Richard Stengel was the single person tasked with unpacking, disproving, and combating both ISIS’s messaging and Russian disinformation. In 2016, he quickly came to see how ISIS, Putin and Trump all used the same playbook. Join him as he shares his singular insights about the global rise of disinformation and how we must find a way to combat this ever growing threat to democracy.
