Past Speakers and Event Highlights

Fake News: Spotting Facts and Stopping Fiction

In the era of President Donald Trump, the label “fake news” has taken on new meaning. Journalists had used the words to describe news reports based on falsehoods or originated from an outlet that ignores traditional journalistic standards. GSPM convened an expert panel to discuss how to stop fake stories and promote the truth.
