Uris Library, Classroom
McGraw Tower, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

In the high-speed world of reality-optional politics, “alternative” facts, and “fake” news, how can you identify news sources that are accurate and trustworthy? There are tools and approaches to help you be a more effective evaluator of news sources and news content. Join us for an hour of practice recognizing reliable news sources and separating them from the “alternative,” fake, truthy, and promotional versions.

This workshop is geared towards undergrads but all are welcome!
