Oerhli’s Fake News Program Streamed

Fake News PosterFake News, Lies, and Propaganda!: How to Sort Fact From Fiction was a tremendous success, with two classes and a total of 127 attendees.  Angie Oehrli (UM-Ann Arbor Learning Librarian) talked about questions we should ask ourselves as we watch or read the news. We learned critical thinking skills and practical strategies to evaluate the news.   If you missed it, check out the recording.

Here’s a link to the Fall semester’s Brad Schwartz presentation: Broadcast Hysteria: Orson Welles’s War of the Worlds and the Art of Fake News.

Mark your calendar for Tuesday, March 20th at 1:00 pm when Paul Levinson will discuss his book Fake News In Real Context.  Dr. Levinson will sign copies of his book after the presentation; the LLC has complimentary book copies for GRCC students, faculty and staff (while supplies last) available at the Circulation Desk.
