The economy of hate: How our marketing budgets fund hate and conspiracy (and how to fix it)

None
How are conspiracy theories and propaganda growing so big, so fast? Why are local news outlets going under? The answer lies in the $89.5 billion ad industry. In this session, we’ll look at how disinformation incubates in the internet’s “long tail” before it makes its way into mainstream media. We’ll look at how irresponsible programmatic advertising is incentivizing the growth of disinformation and spreading hate around the world. Learn how it works, and how to put a stick in the spokes of this trainwreck industry.
