Event Details

Misinformation and disinformation about current events spread fast online.  False, misleading, and misattributed stories and images add to the confusion about what is happening in today's world. 

Join us monthly as we explore media coverage on a trending topic and practice looking for misleading content. Learn about skills and tools to help you stem the spread of misinformation.

 

July's topic is COVID-19. How is the Pandemic reported in the US? Internationally? Where can you find local information? Join us as we explore media coverage on this topic.
