Please join us for a public talk on the political dimension of the “Fake News“ debate with John Nichols, national-affairs correspondent for The Nation.
Recent politics have contributed to the notion that facts matter neither in political, social, or journalistic contexts. Media outlets at times purport theses that are largely unfounded or at least highly questionable from a factual standpoint. In his talk, John Nichols will outline what politics can do to counter these developments.
John Nichols wrote for The New York Times, and Chicago Tribune, among others. He has appeared on MSNBC, NPR, and the BBC to discuss presidential administrations and executive power.
This event is part of the speaker series, “The Future of Journalism“.
