It's our job to fact check the news. But what is the line between correcting misinformation and amplifying it? In this episode, we'll talk to Ben Collins about how he reports on online extremism for NBC News. Then, we'll speak with Whitney Phillips of Syracuse University about her guidelines for journalists covering misinformation.

(Mis)informed is hosted by Daniel Funke and produced by Vanya Tsvetkova, an interactive learning producer at Poynter's News University. It was edited by Alexios Mantzarlis, with additional editing and creative direction from Alex Laughlin.
