Fake news, misinformation, and political bias: News literacy for the 21st century

April 2, 2018 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm

| Free

Due to popular demand, Fogler Library will host a second session of the Fake News Workshop originally held on March 26!

Space is limited and registration is required. Please share the online registration with students, faculty, or staff who wish to attend.

Claims about fake news, bias, and misinformation have become much more prevalent in the past few years. But what is “fake news”? And what role does personal bias play in our perception of the news? Being a more informed 21st-century citizen requires a critical approach to the media. Join Judith Rosenbaum, Assistant Professor in Communication and Journalism, and Jen Bonnet, Social Sciences & Humanities Librarian, for an interactive workshop where we will unpack the many meanings of “fake news” and learn how to critically evaluate information we find online.
