Truth in The Age of Fake News and Disinformation

 

Sunday, December 8
4 – 4:50 PM @ National Museum of American Jewish History

What is fake news? We’ve heard this concept bandied about in both conservative and liberal media, but what does it mean and how has it impacted our lives? What are our responsibilities as media consumers to assure that we inadvertently do not aid the spread of misinformation? What agency do we have as informed citizens to fight disinformation from spreading and supporting the rise of fascism and anti-Semitism in America and abroad?

Join Dr. Elliot Ratzman, award-winning journalist Evan Benn, and the founder of the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival (PIFF), Benjamin Barnett, for a frank conversation about truth and democracy in our digital-global age.
