Fake News Panel Discussion

Independence, MO

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. CDT

Misleading, persuading and deceiving — fake news has become a central part of the conversation on media and how it affects our nation’s politics and current events. How long has fake news affected our society, and what steps can we take to find the truth amidst the falsehoods?

Join us for an enlightening panel discussion that includes White House correspondent for Bloomberg News and president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, Margaret Talev; PR professional and spokesman for Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, Kevin Madden; Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial writer and leader of The Kansas City Star’s Editorial Board, Colleen McCain Nelson; and Mark Alford, Co-anchor, FOX 4 News.
