Alternative Facts & Fake News

 
Ford Hall Forum is sounding the alarm for threats to the First Amendment, particularly regarding attempts from the federal government to invalidate and restrict journalism. We’ve seen American reporters and photographers covering demonstrations reprimanded as participating dissenters, not to mention entire network dubbed “fake news” by the current administration. How can journalists play their role in a democracy when those like Evan Engel are charged with a felony when doing so?

 
Suffolk University Associate Professor of Communication & Journalism Deborah Geisler interviews Matt Viser (Boston Globe), Joe Mathieu (WBZ), and Evan Engel (Vocativ) on recent disturbing trends in the treatment of reporters and the Fourth Estate as a whole.

 
Wednesday, April 19, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Modern Theatre, Suffolk University, 525 Washington Street
