About this Event

In light of the current public health concerns related to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, KUOW has chosen to cancel this in-person event. We are currently exploring options to reschedule this event. As soon as we have more details, we will let you know. Thank you for your understanding. Please reach out to us with any questions at events@kuow.org.

In this age of false narratives and fake news, how can we think critically about media and how we consume information? Join KUOW and the Center for an Informed Public on Thursday, April 23 at The HUB UW Seattle for Stand with the Facts: How to Spot and Stop the Spread of Misinformation. KUOW’s All Things Considered host Kim Malcolm and CIP Director Jevin West will explore strategies for news consumers and offer tips on how to stop the spread of misinformation in our daily lives. Jevin West developed a class on this subject, with the goal of teaching students and the public how to “spot and refute BS wrapped in numbers, statistics, and algorithms.” Find out ways you can combat fake news and hear from other experts standing with the facts.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
