Media Literacy for Midterm Elections

Fake news. Russian hackers. Dark money. Relentless political ads. Perhaps more than ever in recent history, the media is under attack. How can we identify a legitimate news source today? Why and how are the messages we see every day spun and skewered for purposes other than reporting the news? Join us as Dr. Andrew Smith of Lindenwood University and Jessica Bellamo of Gateway Media Literacy Partners explain how we can better navigate these murky waters. Their insights will help you assess voting issues in November. Hosted by Missouri Professional Communicators and St. Louis Press Club. Program is free. Please RSVPmpcnfpw@gmail.com.
