Fake news, real problem

Whether you’re a journalist or a news consumer, chances are you’ve heard the term “fake news.” Fake news is more than a label, it’s a problem journalists across the country are confronting when trying to gain the trust of their audience. As journalists, how do we combat these accusations while not dismissing our audience? Does research show any promising results when it comes to journalists correcting misinformation?

Matt Hall, opinion director at The San Diego Union-Tribune

Rachel Laing, principal of Laing Strategic Communications

Rachel Moran, researcher and doctoral student at USC Annenberg

When: Tuesday, November 14th from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Where: The San Diego Central Library in the Shiley Special Events Suite 330 Park Blvd., San Diego, CA 92101
