Join our expert panel as we examine the impact of fake news, misinformation and conspiracy theories on American democracy, past and present. Panel historians will look at instances of these phenomena to help us understand the challenges they present to our democracy both historically and today and what remedies we might pursue. Experts on child trafficking will contribute their expertise on how a specific conspiracy theory – like QAnon – is hijacking legitimate conversations in this critical policy area. Noted local journalists look at the impact of misinformation on the role of the media in American democracy.
