Informed Citizen Series: Media Literacy in an Age of Fake News
6:30 PM
Missoula Public Library
Description:
Fake news: It’s a term thrown around so frequently and indiscriminately that it’s nearly meaningless. Is it just news that you don’t like? Or a deliberate attempt to mislead? And, with so many news sources in print, on the air and online, how do you know which are trustworthy? Join Missoulian editor Gwen Florio as she examines the difference between traditional objective reporting and the rise of opinion-based outlets, and will provide fact-checking tools for when you’re in doubt about the information presented. Gwen has worked four decades in the news business, including as a Denver-based national correspondent for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and in war zones for the Denver Post, as well as a stint as an adjunct professor in the University of Montana’s School of Journalism. Join the discussion in the Large Meeting Room. 6:30 PM
