How to understand and spot hate speech and what are the best ways to counter it? This was the focus of a training course for high school students held by Get The Trolls Out! partner “Symbiosis-School of Political Studies in Greece” in Thessaloniki, Greece.
Our partner in Hungary, Centre for Independent Journalism, held a workshop in Hungary for 20 journalists. The workshop was titled "Deception, misinformation and the impact – use of journalistic language” and focussed on the topic of manipulative language. Specifically, the workshop covered the Hungarian media and political landscape, which is heavily influenced by emotive and manipulative language. It has come to a point where now even the independent press is taking over the language used by Orbán and his government.
