Out d’Coup LIVE | Sara Aniano, social media misinformation researcher, on right-wing extremist rhetoric from the People’s Convoy to the Buffalo shootings

May 23, 2022

On this episode of Out d'Coup LIVE, I welcome Sara Aniamo to the show. Sara Aniano is a researcher who recently graduated from Monmouth University with a master’s in communication. Her work on social media misinformation and the rhetoric of the far-right has garnered nationwide media attention. She aims to use her expertise in the future to clean up the information ecosystem online.

Her new article, "Deflection and Denial Following the Buffalo Terror Attack," published by the Global Network on Extremism and Technology," looks at right-wing media's response to the white supremacist that killed 10 people at a supermarket in a black Buffalo neighborhood. 

Aniano was one of the graduate student researchers featured in a recent CNET article, "The Unsung Force Digging Through Misinformation," who have been on the front lines exposing QAnon, anti-vax misinformation, and right-wing conspiracy theories. She also spent extensive time covering the "People's Convoy" of right-wing truckers this past March.
