Dissecting Fake News: Media Literacy In The Post-Truth Era

Never before has the practice and code of journalism come so profoundly under fire. From the 24-hour news cycle to the instantaneity of social media to the proliferation of fake news websites and presidential challenges, our media landscape has not only been transformed, but has also become incredibly challenging to understand.  Join The Cinematheque for a media literacy workshop that will examine recent case studies and provide a starter kit of tools for helping our students navigate news in the post-truth era.
