Join us for conversation with CNN Reporter Donie O'Sullivan who tries to help make sense of recent trends and challenges regarding facts, news, and misinformation as governments across the world grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Using false information with the intention to mislead is a technique that has been around a long time, well before we were all connected online. The internet has allowed these techniques to scale and spread, and that means we all are becoming increasingly challenged in distinguishing fact from fiction.  
IIBN''s New York Board Member, Kevin Murphy, will have a conversation with CNN's Donie O' Sullivan to discuss this and we hope you can join us.  

This event is at 5pm (Dublin time) on Wednesday, 27th May.

Donie O'Sullivan CNN Reporter

Donie O'Sullivan is a CNN reporter covering the intersection of technology and politics. He is
part of the CNN Business team and works closely with CNNs investigative unit tracking and
identifying online disinformation campaigns targeting the American electorate. He also covers
how social media platforms, Congress, and the American intelligence community are
responding to the threat of disinformation and troll campaigns.

O'Sullivan was part of a team that uncovered several major Russian government-linked social
media campaigns targeting Americans in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. His
work was later used by congress investigators and others examining the extent of Russian
meddling ahead of the election.

He previously worked as part of CNN's Social Discovery team, finding and verifying videos,
pictures, and eyewitness accounts from social media during breaking news events.

Before joining CNN, Sullivan worked for Storyful, a social media verification news agency, in
New York and Dublin, Ireland. He has a masters degree in political science from Queens
University Belfast in Northern Ireland.
