Info

"Fake news" is nothing new. In 1806, Thomas Jefferson sued The Hartford Courant for libel. He lost. According to Susan Campbell, Jefferson's ploy was a bogus suit by a president fed up with the news coverage he was receiving. Campbell, a columnist for The Hartford Courant, will deconstruct contemporary news coverage in a free presentation "Fake News: Citizens--Arm Yourselves!" at the New Haven Museum. The inclement weather date is February 27.

The event concludes a year-long initiative by Connecticut Humanities, "Fake News: Is it Real? Journalism in the Age of Social Media," created to facilitate a statewide conversation about why people are distrustful of news, how technology is changing information consumption, and how citizens can better evaluate news sources.

Campbell will share some quick-and-easy tips for discerning fake news from real, particularly on social media platforms like Twitter. She'll also give reasons for optimism.
