FRANK Talk: Gail Rhodes, "The Spread of Fake News: Is There A Vaccine For That?"

Monday, September 30, 2019

Gail Rhodes, Arizona State University, Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, "The Spread of Fake News: Is There A Vaccine For That?" Like a virus, fake news catches on erratically, intensely, and swiftly, and can leave the American public feeling dazed and confused. How can media producers and consumers cure the spread of this false-information outbreak? What steps are technology and media companies taking? How can we protect ourselves and maintain a healthy dose of democratic discourse and debate? Learn about the standard practices of journalism, and how to become a savvy news consumer. Join us for a FRANK Talk on how to find the right prescription for healthy media consumption. FRANK Talks are free, thought-provoking discussions on important issues facing our communities produced in partnership with Arizona Humanities and the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records.
