Now a prof at UW. I thought it interesting that in covid times, her specialty is online mis-information.

I can't tell if she teaches any classes from that. Reminds me of the time that I met a Berkeley professor and asked him what he taught. He seemed taken aback or offended and told me that "you have to understand that most of our (either Berkeley professors or professors in general) work is research".

Why US ballot count livestreams became misinformation magnets
Livestreams of the count aren’t a new phenomenon – but after Trump’s baseless vote fraud claims, many are wondering if this method of transparency is too vulnerable

,,,“The issue comes where information can be picked up, cut, taken out of context and reframed or reinterpreted,” said Kate Starbird, associate professor at the University of Washington and cofounder of the Center for an Informed Public. “That just becomes raw material for people trying to create conspiracy theories.”...
