From The NY Times:
Two months ago, The New York Times asked readers to send in examples of election-related misinformation they saw online.
Readers responded. In all, more than 4,000 examples of misinformation were submitted to The Times from social media feeds, text-messaging apps and email accounts.
Each legitimate submission was vetted by reporters and editors at The Times, and many have influenced our journalism in the lead-up to the midterm elections. We are grateful for readers’ submissions, and dedicated to continuing the work of fighting digital misinformation.
Examples are Organized Into These Categories:
- ‘Hoax Floods’ After Major News Events
- Poorly Labeled Campaign Ads
- Russian Reddit Manipulation
- Voter Suppression Attempts
- Deceptive Claims About Candidates
- Sketchy Text Messages
- Committee-Sponsored ‘Attack Pages’
