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 creates for credible news outlets and reporters.


Brooke Van Dam Associate director and faculty director of MPS in Journalism at Georgetown University


Lauren Gambino National reporter for Guardian US
Sara Fischer Media reporter for Axios
Molly Ball Staff writer covering U.S. politics for The Atlantic
