Is It Real or Fake?

April 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Is It Real or Fake?

Do you, too, struggle to tell fact from fiction? Or are you reveling in the humorous side of the fake news “epidemic”?

Join WBUR reporter Jack Lepiarz in a conversation with Ethan Zuckerman, Director of the Center for Civic Media at MIT, Melissa Zimdars, Assistant Professor of Communication at Merrimack College, and Rob May, CEO of Talla, who will discuss where fake news comes from, how it spreads and how to identify it.

Find out if our panelists can bluff you in an on-site fake news game show!

Cost: Free. Doors open at 6:30. Seating for 125 and limited standing room available on a first-come, first-served basis.
