LEWIS invites you to…

Defining Journalism in a Post-Truth Era

Fake news is not a new phenomenon. But, the era of web-generated fake news has seriously challenged journalistic norms. A panel of renowned journalists will discuss what this proliferation of misinformation means for the news industry including:

  • How publications and reporters can maintain credibility in a post-truth era.
  • How attacks on the free press have increased the pressure on traditional news outlets to defend themselves and find new ways to reach their target audiences.
  • Whether facts still matter and the incentives for spreading misinformation, disinformation, lies, fantasies and propaganda.
  • The ability of tech companies and news sites to contain this flood of inaccuracy without bias or censorship.
  • The challenges and opportunities this era of distrust create for credible news outlets and reporters.
