2020 Election: Conspiracy Theories vs. the Latinx Community

Wild Wild Tech

Games & Hobbies

On this special pre-election episode, Jordan Erica Webber and Joshua Rivera explore the cloud of misinformation that is affecting the country, more specifically, how it's targeting the state of Florida and the Latinx community that resides therein. They speak with Sabrina Rodríguez, Florida native and politics writer for Politico, who wrote an article detailing how wild conspiracy theories are directly warping the political attitudes of the varied Latin demographics in Florida, and how conspiracy theories have begun to appear in local media publications in the Sunshine State. Joshua also speaks with his uncle Ezequiel Rivera, a resident of Florida, who is directly affected by the misinformation campaign flooding local media and even WhatsApp. Though this contentious election is affecting everyone around the country, Jordan and Joshua offer helpful ideas to fight against misinformation and bring peace back to our democratic process. Now, go out and vote!
