On February 10th 2021, PSSI held an online debate focused on the advertising revenue of disinformation pages. The guests, Denisa Hejlová (Charle University), Roman Čihalík (NELEŽ), together with PSSI’s own Jonáš Syrovátka, discussed which disinformation platforms gain the most from online ads, which civic movements are trying to draw attention to this issue, and how private companies react to their advertisement appearing on controversial platforms. The debate was hosted by Vojtěch Boháč (Voxpot).
