Do you believe the words coming out of your mouth? feat. Andrea Mercado

This week we’re joined by Andrea Mercado of Florida Rising who, along with a slew of other activist groups, recently published their findings from a media monitoring campaign tracking disinformation in Spanish language media in Miami. No Mas Disinformation is live online, and it has been generating buzz about a corner of media that often goes under-discussed and is rarely explored by the wider media. 

Andrea talks us through the findings, the trend lines in Spanish language media, introduce us to some of the biggest liars on the AM dial in Miami, and the full scope of the problems that come when entire swaths of our community have their perception of the world warped by outlandish lies.
