Register for our Fall 2022 workshop on
Keeping It Real: Exploring Non-Traditional Avenues for Reporting Truth and Battling Misinformation
Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Homewood Library and on Zoom
We are living in the most complex news-media environment in history. Social-media influencers, content marketers, vloggers, bloggers, and media personalities and organizations without the training or motivation to ethically report information are crowding the landscape. At the same time, traditional news outlets, especially local ones, have struggled or shut down, laying off many employees who, along with people from non-communications backgrounds, are striking out on their own in this informational Wild West. In addition, some journalists, finding flaws in conventional ways in which issues and communities have been reported on, have turned to innovative or less common methods of reporting.
During the fall workshop, we’ll hear from several speakers who are using non-traditional platforms or approaches to disseminate important, high-quality news amidst a sea of misinformation. In addition to telling about their journeys, speakers will share their professional standards, how they prove their credibility to their audiences and how they are using their channels to fight back against misinformation. All professional communicators can learn from these practices.
