Can you spot fake news? Is journalism increasingly challenged in this so-called post-truth era? This talk will provide ways for listeners to ensure that the news they get is accurate, and for news organizations to safeguard their reporting as fair and correct. It will also explore the role of journalists in being better ethical stewards of the news.

Jane Lindholm hosts the award-winning Vermont Public Radio program Vermont Edition. Jane began her journalism career in 2001, when she joined National Public Radio (NPR) as an Editorial/Production Assistant for Radio Expeditions, a co-production of NPR and the National Geographic Society.
