OSULP Speaker Series on Fake News: Alternative Facts with Dr. Peter Laufer

Lindsay Marlow

Thursday, April 27, 2017 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In this age of instant news and “alternative facts,” information consumers need easy-to-follow rules for sorting out truth from lies. Award-winning journalist and University of Oregon Journalism Professor Peter Laufer comes to the rescue with Slow News: A Manifesto for the Critical News Consumer. Professor Laufer will give a lecture on alternative facts based on research he conducted for his previously mentioned book.
Inspired by the Slow Food movement, Slow News offers a timely antidote to “fake news.” With 29 simple rules for avoiding echo chambers and recognizing misinformation, Laufer’s manifesto is an idea guide to these challenging times.
