Detecting Fake News

February 21 @ 6:00PM

Multiple TV and print news sources present competing facts, social media offers up-to-the-minute but often unreliable information, and web sources can be hard to verify.  Join us for a panel discussion with local news and information professionals on how to detect and avoid fake news.
