Area Journalists To Speak Out on Fake News
The second session in the Red Bank Public Library’s program, “The Challenges of Fake News: Professional Perspectives,” will be a panel discussion featuring three well known area journalists. John Burton (Two River Times), Hollis Towns (Asbury Park Press), and John T. Ward (RedBank Green) will address the battle for journalistic integrity against the onslaught of fake news. The panel will discuss how the preparation and marketing of legitimate news publications relies on experience and skepticism to identify and discard false accounts that would propagate fake news. The program will be held in the Library (84 W. Front Street) on November 1st at 7:00 PM.
