2019 Joseph Howe Symposium – Decoding the News
November 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmfree
BuzzFeed media editor Craig Silverman is known internationally for his reporting on social platforms and media manipulation, and for debunking truly “fake news”: the mis- and dis-information found at all levels of social media.
In this year’s Joseph Howe Symposium keynote, he’ll weigh the successes and failures of social platforms in the 2019 federal election.
He’ll also offer advice everyone can use to fight misinformation – and outright lies – online.
