Fact vs. fake: Fighting back against fake news
The Information School's Jevin West, one of the forces behind "Calling BS," will be a featured panelist at The Seattle Times' LiveWire event on fake news.
Many Americans get their news on social media, where false stories, propaganda and one-sided perspectives spread like wildfire. LiveWire promises a timely forum with technology and journalism experts about how to fight fake news and preserve the integrity of a free, independent and legitimate press.
The Seattle Times LiveWire series, presented by Microsoft, features meaningful discussions about vital issues impacting our region and its people. For more information, visit seattletimes.com/livewire or email email@example.com.
A VIP reception begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by the event beginning at 6:30. Representatives from the iSchool will be on hand with information about our graduate and undergraduate programs.
Registration for the event is full, but you can view a livestream on the Seattle Times Facebook page.
