Luke O'Brien

Writing about political extremists, as HuffPost's Luke O'Brien has for years, was always a tough job. Now that extremists use electronic media to target reporters, their families, and their jobs, it's even tougher. In this session, O'Brien and HuffPost's editor-in-chief, Lydia Polgreen, will help you understand the tactics of disinformation campaigns that target the media — and give you tips to ensure you don't fall victim.
