    FAKE NEWS

     

    fake news flyer sept 13The Challenges of Fake News: Professional Perspectives

    Human beings routinely seek factually correct and relevant information in politics, journalism, and everyday life.  Unfortunately, the proliferation of media sources has brought in its wake the propagation of inaccurate information and contrived false news stories that are indiscriminately spread by means of social media. As the source of many types of information for the Red Bank community, the Red Bank Public Library strives to be a beacon of truth that stands in favor of facts and provides reliable and valid material.  However, many patrons regularly use its facilities to access publications and Web sites that have not been as rigorously fact-checked as published books. This ‘fake news’ program is the Library’s way of helping patrons become savvy consumers of published information by becoming familiar with fact-checking methods.

    October 4th (7:00 PM).  Evaluating Published Information
    With all the phony headlines and hoaxes floating around the Internet, it can feel like April Fool’s any day of the year” (PolitiFact, 2017). Healthy skepticism has always been advisable when consuming published information.  However, even greater vigilance is now necessary given the abundance of information streams that, unfortunately, are far more likely to be contaminated by simple misstatements of facts, opinion in the guise of truth, or deliberate falsehoods and propaganda.  Media literacy strategies guide the process of determining what is real and what isn’t.  CRAAP will be discussed – not a characterization of news content, but a set of standards for distinguishing between credible and unreliable news items.

    Presenter: Professor Marina Vujnovic, Department of Communication, Monmouth University
