Is it Real or is it Fake? A Discussion About News
7:00 PM

Presented by Donna Shaw, professor and chair of Journalism and Professional Writing at The College of New Jersey. Defining "fake news" used to be easy: It consisted of lies told on purpose. American politicians and some unscrupulous news outlets have been engaging in this practice for centuries. Today, though, it's more complicated and more divisive. So how can we spot fake news—and how can we keep from accidentally spreading it ourselves? Registration required. Call 882-3148.
