Ideas on Tap: Real or Fake? Making Our Way in Post-Fact America
Join us for the first event in our new "Ideas on Tap," a quarterly series that examines big questions about timely topics in our civic life.
In our 24-hour news cycle, there’s often not enough time to separate fact from fiction before content goes viral. Information travels too quickly and articles are shared without being read closely or evaluated for accuracy. Is the misinformation, disinformation, and political propaganda more acute today than ever before? Join us for a conversation and Q & A with a journalist, legal expert, and educator about the role and influence of mass media in our democracy.
Moderator: Erika Janik, Executive Producer, NHPR (Moderator)
Presenters: Adam Sexton, News Director, WMUR
William L. Chapman, Attorney, Orr & Reno, PA
Mark Timney, Associate Professor of Journalism, Keene State College
Cost is $10 per person and includes appetizers and one beverage (beer, wine, or non-alcoholic drink) in the relaxed atmosphere of the Barley House B Lounge. Please RSVP by October 16. REGISTER
