Event description

Description

A look at the hashtagization of our national discourse. We have reached the point where the two sides of our great political divide no longer agree even on what the facts are. Where does that leave the news media? The internet has fueled the growth of #fakenews (real and imagined), but it has also given reporters new tools.

Special Guest: Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting
