Momentum: Misinformation in the Mainstream News

Guest Speaker: Jonathan Axelrad, Retired Attorney, Goodwin Procter LLP

Moderator: Elvin T. Ramos, Dean, Social Sciences and Humanities

This event in the Momentum discussion series is open to all faculty, students, staff and community members.

Misinformation is everywhere and the burden is on all of us to avoid being duped. In this lecture, Jonathan Axelrad will analyze two articles on the same topic taken from The New York Times and Fox News to illustrate some key misinformation techniques, red flags to help the reader identify misinformation, and the fact that misinformation can vary from relatively mild "bias" to actual "fake news."

Co-sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Division and the Foothill-De Anza Foundation
