Two Truths and a Lie: Active Media Consumption in a Digital Age

Anyone born around the turn of the millennia has come of age in a world engrossed by easily consumable, digital media. While this has engaged a generation, the proliferation of misleading information across social media from unverified sources has eroded the trust in traditional journalism. Our panelists will discuss the challenges that come with today’s fast paced news cycle and how we can all be more active media consumers. 

Location: University of Maryland, College Park

Date and time: May 31, 2018 noon – 1:30 p.m.
