This week has been a whirlwind, hasn’t it? We’re thrilled with the good news- but the fight isn’t over yet. It’s just beginning, and we have a long way to go.
Since the count started, there’s has been so much disinfo that its rhetoric doesn’t rely on social media anymore. It’s embedded in popular news, local papers, television, radio, forums, and everywhere else you might look. Now that Biden is president, the question remains…Where do we go from here?
As always, share your thoughts and ideas with us on Twitter at @Disinfoindex. We’d love to hear from you.
