Disinformation or the deliberate abuse and spread of inaccurate and misleading information for political or financial gain has been around for many years but has been weaponised in the past few years thanks to social media.

With more on this Joe was joined on the show this morning by Prof Stephan Lewandowsky from the University of Bristol.
