Misinfo Reaction Frames: Reasoning about Readers' Reactions to News Headlines (preprint)

  title={Misinfo Reaction Frames: Reasoning about Readers' Reactions to News Headlines (preprint)},
  author={Saadia Gabriel and Skyler Hallinan and Maarten Sap and Pemi Nguyen and Franziska Roesner and Eunsol Choi and Yejin Choi},
Even to a simple and short news headline, readers react in a multitude of ways: cognitively (e.g., inferring the writer's intent), emotionally (e.g., feeling distrust), and behaviorally (e.g., sharing the news with their friends). Such reactions are instantaneous and yet complex, as they rely on factors that go beyond interpreting the factual content the news headline. Instead, understanding reactions require pragmatic understanding of the news headline, including broader background knowledge… 


Fine-Grained Analysis of Propaganda in News Article
A novel task: performing fine-grained analysis of texts by detecting all fragments that contain propaganda techniques as well as their type is proposed, and a novel multi-granularity neural network is designed that outperforms several strong BERT-based baselines.
COVID-Twitter-BERT: A Natural Language Processing Model to Analyse COVID-19 Content on Twitter
COVID-Twitter-BerT (CT-BERT), a transformer-based model, pretrained on a large corpus of Twitter messages on the topic of COVID-19, shows a 10-30% marginal improvement compared to its base model, BERT-Large, on five different classification datasets.
COVIDLies: Detecting COVID-19 Misinformation on Social Media
COVIDLIES1, a dataset of 6761 expert-annotated tweets to evaluate the performance of misinformation detection systems on 86 different pieces of COVID-19 related misinformation, is released, providing initial benchmarks and identifying key challenges for future models to improve upon.
DETERRENT: Knowledge Guided Graph Attention Network for Detecting Healthcare Misinformation
A novel knowledge guided graph attention network for detecting health misinformation better that addresses the limitation on social contexts in the healthcare domain and is capable of providing useful explanations for the results of detection.
CLIMATE-FEVER: A Dataset for Verification of Real-World Climate Claims
The surprising, subtle complexity of modeling real-world climate-related claims within the \textsc{fever} framework is discussed, which is believed to provide a valuable challenge for general natural language understanding.

The frames notion is defended, to give a number of examples, mostly from English, of different kinds of frame structures, to suggest informally and intuitively how the frame concept can figure in the explanation of the communication and comprehension processes, and in the end to offer some hedged speculations on how the study of frames might appear in research on evolution toward language and on the evolution of language.
A Survey on Stance Detection for Mis- and Disinformation Identification
This survey examines the relationship between stance detection and misand disinformation detection from a holistic viewpoint and reviews and analyzes existing work in this area.
Exploring Lightweight Interventions at Posting Time to Reduce the Sharing of Misinformation on Social Media
This work investigates the design of lightweight interventions that nudge users to assess the accuracy of information as they share it, and finds that both providing accuracy assessment and rationale reduce the sharing of false content.
