Prince Harry has long been an outspoken foe of “misinformation” on social media and in the press. He has joined the Aspen Institute’s Commission on Information Disorder as a commissioner.
Harry will work with 14 other commissioners and three co-chairs on a six-month study on the state of American misinformation. Journalist Katie Couric, Color of Change president Rashad Robinson and Chris Krebs, the former director of the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, are the co-chairs.
“This information crisis undermines confidence in our democratic institutions and strikes right at the foundation of society,” Krebs said in a statement.
