Reporting in the Age of Alternative Facts
Start Date: 4/15/2017Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 4/15/2017End Time: 5:00 PM
Event Description:
What is the state of reporting in this new era of “alternative facts”? How can journalism succeed despite denial of access, censorship, media blackouts and attempts to delegitimize the press? As journalists, documentarians, reporters and editors, we are in uncharted waters, and our profession under fire like never before. 

As a response to this, the Journalism department of the College of Media, Communication and Information at the University of Colorado Boulder, is bringing together journalists, media scholars, lawyers, archivists, photographers and filmmakers for a one-day conference. The event will have kick off lively discussions on accountability through access and archives, leveraging community media, the rise of Trump and the facts on fake news, the impact of citizen journalism, and safety and storytelling on America’s new front line. The keynote will be presented by ProPublica’s senior editor, Joe Sexton. There will be panelists from the New York Times, The Nation, The Denver Post, KGNU, Rocky Mountain PBS and others. For students of journalism and members of the wider community, this is valuable opportunity to raise debate and discussion about how we got here, and where we’re headed. 

The conference will feature interactive multimedia events by the Portal and MAPE students, with the aim of promoting democracy through open dialogue and cross-community engagement.
