Endless Opportunities – Journalism in the Era of ‘Fake News’

February 13 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

What sets journalism apart from gossip, opinion or marketing? Most journalists would answer: Facts. Good reporting is supposed to practice verification, transparency and fairness, in order to get as close as possible to the truth. But what happens when society’s confidence in the media, as well as other institutions from government to academia, erodes? When authoritative reporting can be dismissed with an offhand reference to “fake news?” Gabriel Spitzer of Seattle NPR station KNKX will join us to talk about how journalists wrestle with these issues, and how journalism, like science, is above all a method for separating truth from fiction.
