IDEAS ON TAP: Real or Fake? Making Our Way in Post-Fact America

Ideas on Tap is a series of "pint-sized conversations about big ideas." Misinformation, disinformation, and political rhetoric are not new, but is this more acute today than in the past? We are overwhelmed by information and the inexhaustible number of news sources that bring it to us. In this program, we'll look at the impact of “fake news” and how we as citizens can remain educated, thoughtful, discerning consumers of information. This online event will be taking place via Zoom.
