In today’s media maze, it can be challenging to stay abreast of the information reported in a 24-hour news cycle and, more importantly, to understand the reliability of the content. Media literacy, recognizing misinformation/disinformation and fake news, has become more important than ever. Join us for this insightful presentation and discussion with international expert, Emmy Award-winning freelance journalist and Assistant Director at Trusting News, Lynn Walsh and moderator, retired CBS News White House Correspondent, Peter Maer.
