Journalism, Social Media and Facts

Social media are transforming and disrupting the connections between journalists and news consumers. How can we be sure that what we’re reading and watching is true? What can social media platforms do to curtail the spread of misinformation and lies? Should social media be regulated and, if so, how? How can journalists make the best use of social media to gain audience and enrich their reporting while also protecting themselves from harassment and worse? We’ll explore these questions and more with a panel of journalists and social media experts.
