Facts, Fake News, and a Post-Truth America

Apr 11, 2017, 7:00 pm

A recent Pew Research Center survey found that 59% of U.S. adults want just facts—with no interpretation—in their news. The same survey found that not everyone can agree on which facts are true. Take part in a panel discussion moderated by KRCL RadioActive Host and Executive Producer Lara Jones that will explore real and fake news and facts with local experts, including:

· George Pyle, Editorial Writer for The Salt Lake Tribune
· Enrique Limón, Managing Editor for Salt Lake City Weekly
· Allison Pond, Senior Projects Editor for Deseret News
· Joel Campbell, Associate Journalism Professor at Brigham Young University

A reception will follow the panel discussion.

This event is made possible with support from The City Library, KRCL, and Utah Humanities.
