"Media in the Minefield: Do You Trust Your News?"
Tuesday, October 24, 2017, 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
“Fake News” has been a buzzword since the presidential election. It’s been used by both sides and everywhere in between as many organizations have tried to define, understand and work against this troubling term. Meanwhile, it’s left many of us wondering how much we can really trust our usual news sources and Facebook feeds. It’s become a minefield for both media and its consumers.
In that spirit, the Columbia Alumni Association of Michigan and the Detroit Press Club bring you an evening of analysis and exploration of current problems that journalists face and what consumers should be aware of as they choose their news sources.
Chuck Stokes, WXYZ-TV Director of Editorial & Public Affairs and alumnus of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, will moderate the discussion with our expert media panel:
• Peter Bhatia, Editor, The Detroit Free Press, and a multiple Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.
• Richard Burr, Politics and Government Editor, The Detroit News.
• Jack Lessenberry, head of Wayne State University’s journalism program and senior news analyst for Michigan Public Radio.
• Jo Angela Oehrli, University of Michigan, who teaches, “Fake News, Lies, and Propaganda: How to Sort Fact from Fiction."
The event is at Grand Circus, an independent school that teaches software coding.
Woodward entrance, Broderick Tower - 3rd Floor, 1570 Woodward Ave., Detroit, MI 48226.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a social hour and refreshments on the Third Floor. Grand Circus is offering tours at this time to see their facility. Discussion follows at 7 p.m. on the Fourth Floor with questions from the audience. Event ends at 8:30 p.m.
Cost: $10 per person. Seating is limited. You must register and pay here:
