Gordon S. Jackson Conference in Media Law and Ethics
Current events may be shining a new spotlight on verification in modern journalism, but it’s long been a concern discussed by professional communicators on all platforms. The 2017 Gordon S. Jackson Conference in Media Law and Ethics explores the challenges of verification, fact-checking, “real vs. fake news” and more through both a legal and an ethical lens. This evening event features two prominent media scholars, their thoughts and your questions.
