Fake news, misinformation, and political bias

October 22, 2018 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm

Fake news, misinformation, and political bias: News literacy for the 2018 midterm elections

Claims about fake news, bias, and misinformation have become much more prevalent in the past few years. But what is “fake news”? And what role does personal bias play in our perception of the news? Being a more informed 21st-century citizen requires a critical approach to the media, one that is especially important during an election season. Join Judith Rosenbaum, Assistant Professor in Communication and Journalism, and Jen Bonnet, Social Sciences & Humanities Librarian, for an interactive workshop where we will unpack the many meanings of “fake news” and learn how to critically evaluate information we find online.

This event will take place in Library Classroom 1 and attendance is first come first served.
