Fake News with Randall Mikkelsen

Wednesday, March 22


The wave of 'fake news' that flooded Facebook and other social media during last year's election campaign was a wakeup call. Big changes have overtaken the way we get news in the United States, how newsmakers communicate and how news is produced. These changes have given us the opportunity to be better informed. They also require us to be more careful consumers, so we can recognize distortion, propaganda and outright lies. Join a nonpartisan discussion with White House press veteran Randall Mikkelsen, a managing editor at Thomson Reuters, on how to understand what we are getting in the social-media driven news landscape and how to tell the real from the fake.

In the Auditorium.
