Friday, April 27, 2018

Are you confused, troubled, or perplexed by the likely presence of 'fake news", 'alternative facts,' and phony sources in your email, on facebook, twitter or even in your newspaper, all of which seem to have mushroomed in this era of rapidly growing social media opportunities? Do you know the difference between fake news and satire? Do you know how to spot a fake? Do you know about trolls and bots? Are you familiar with FactCheck.org, Snopes.com or PolitiFact.com? Andy Payne's workshop on Friday, April 27 at 11 am at Bemis Hall will help participants to become more savvy readers and researchers, discerning more readily what is true and what is not as well as sources that are legitimate and those that are not.
