Media in the Age of Fake News

Community Room, Green Hills Public Library, 3701 Benham Avenue, Nashville 37215.

Determining who and what to believe in the age of fake news is hard for all of us. Come hear Scott Stroud, an Associate Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, talk about the task of a professional journalist in assessing the reliability of news sources and the important role of the press in a democracy. Scott wrote, "...while I know our business is evolving, I still believe the core of what we do is crucial in a democratic society. People need us to find things out and keep them informed about their government, trends in society that affect them directly and indirectly, and the changing world around them.",+Nashville,+TN+37215/@36.109904,-86.8112916,17z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x8864646cfbeb0ce7:0x227f417aaf77549c!8m2!3d36.109904!4d-86.8091029
