Garry Gilbert, Journalism Program Director Oakland University, Advisor to Oakland Press
Truth is principle to journalism. It’s also the most confusing — as the truth is complicated. We often disagree on truth — especially in today’s political climate. Who killed JFK? Did the Russians help Donald Trump win the 2016 election? Journalists should dig for verifiable information and make sense of those facts. Today, we’re seeing a rise in “truth decay”. Professor Gilbert will discuss how we can differentiate fact from fiction. Sponsored by Stuart Jeffares of the Jeffares Group of Max Broock.
