Media Misinformation and Disinformation

Wednesday May 26th 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm - Virtual

Join us for a discussion about the spread of misinformation, disinformation and propaganda in American media and how it has come to shape our political discourse.  Are Twitter and Facebook to blame for our deep political divisions?  Or do they simply provide a modern and immediate platform for airing our existing political biases?  How do media environments and journalistic standards on the left, center, center right and far right differ?  And what difference does it make?  How has Russia been able to shape our political discourse and attitudes?  How did we get here and will this ever end?  We will be discussing a new book called Network Propaganda, and a number of other resources listed here.   Please join us for what we hope will be a lively discussion.

Contact the Library for a Zoom invitation to this discussion. Sponsored by Bethany Church and Kimball Library.
