Disinformation is causing ‘death’, Obama adds, and he wishes he had done more to stop its spread.

Conservatives have attacked Obama’s campaign against deception.

During a recent speech, former President Barack Obama used the phrase “disinformation,” and he expressed concern that “people are dying” as a result of the spread of misinformation online.

President Obama said in a speech at Stanford University on the dangers of disinformation, “What continues to nag at me, however, is my failure to fully appreciate, at the time, just how vulnerable we had become to lies and conspiracy theories, despite having spent years as a target of disinformation myself.”
