A outstanding disinformation researcher who labored at Harvard College alleged her undertaking was thwarted and her place ended early after the college obtained a $500 million donation from Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his spouse Priscilla Chan, in accordance with a whistleblower disclosure launched Monday. 

The researcher, Joan Donovan, alleged that Harvard blocked her and her crew on the Shorenstein Middle on the Harvard Kennedy Faculty from persevering with their analysis and finally ended Donavan’s employment earlier than the tip of her contract after the Chan Zuckerberg initiative dedicated a $500 million donation to a college heart on synthetic intelligence in December 2021.
