KEYNOTE: Trust Wars – The Real Battle Against Fake News

SPEAKERS

Brian Stelter

SESSION DESCRIPTION

In a lively debate with broadcast, print and digital journalists and editors, we’ll identify how marketers and content creators can join the fight against fake news in a shared quest to preserve consumer trust. This conversation will also explore:

  • What is the civic responsibility of social media platforms and media outlets? And how is that balanced to avoid censorship from Big Brother?
  • Should social media platforms provide mechanisms to educate and inform the public, empower the public to report suspicious articles and fact-check potentially fake stories?
  • How to educate and inform readers and community members while preserving freedom of expression and privacy rights?
