Some media analysts have deemed the proliferation of fake news as a form of psychological warfare, and possibly even a threat to democracy. How can you tell fact from fiction? What if the fake news is directed at you or your organization? The experts in this session will discuss the history and recent surge of fake news, how to identify it, fact check and, if necessary, defend your organization. As government communicators, how do we address misleading headlines, untrue stories and false social media posts that can erode the public's confidence in government? What roles do we play in helping residents spot fake and recognize credible sources vs. those that lack credibility?
