Counter The Spread of Misinformation With NAB, NALEO


Earlier this month, NALEO Educational Fund, in collaboration with the NAB, hosted a daylong summit designed to counter the spread of misinformation, disinformation, and malinformación targeting Latinos. This placed a focus on identifying, tracking and inoculating against “MDM” narratives that seek to erode the community’s trust in election administration processes.

Due to the tremendously important nature of this topic, the NAB and NALEO will present a summary of that event’s key takeaways at the 2024 Hispanic Radio Conference.

Since the 2020 U.S. presidential election, Latinos have become the second-fastest growing major racial and ethnic electorate. According to Pew Research Center, the number of eligible Latino voters has increased from 32.3 million to an estimated 36.2 million from 2020 to the present, accounting for half of the overall growth in eligible voters during this period.

Latinos are set to make up 14.7% of all eligible voters in the upcoming November 2024 election, marking a historic peak. As “fake news” from all sides poses a threat like never before, how does Hispanic media guide, guard, and direct its audience in a professional, responsible, unbiased way?

The answers will come in San Antonio on June 12-13.
