Combating Misinformation & Disinformation
The media landscape continues to become more complicated, and more confusing. It doesn’t help that it’s also filled with misinformation and disinformation.
We’ll discuss on how these two issues differ from each other, along with the growing challenges professional communicators and journalists now face in their daily jobs. Tips on how to deal with these issues, and the role we play in stopping the spread of bad information will also be discussed.
ABOUT JACI CLEMENT
Jaci Clement is the CEO & Executive Director of the Fair Media Council. For more than two decades, she has studied the content and character of news while advocating for the public’s right to know.
She is a former journalist and news executive for Times Mirror Co. and Dolan Media, among others. When the latter company wanted to send her to a landlocked state to serve as a newspaper publisher, she took this job instead. Staying on Long Island meant working in the No. 1 media market in the world, which just so happens to be surrounded by white sand beaches.
This workshop will be approximately one hour, including a question-and-answer session.
