Panel Discussion at Methodist University Focuses on How to Spot Fake News

The Writing Center at Methodist University will host its second annual panel discussion entitled #FakeNews on Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. in Yarborough Auditorium on campus. The public is invited.

The panel will discuss how best to identify real news from reputable sources and will shine a light on the social and political costs of holding falsehood and fantasy as truth.

The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Christopher Cronin, assistant professor of Political Science. The Hon. Margaret Highsmith Dickson, a Methodist University Trustee, will participate as a guest panelist. Sen. Dickson is a former member of the N.C. General Assembly and a former broadcast journalist. She will be joined by Dr. Kevin Swift, chair of the Mass Communications department; Dr. Patrick O’Neil, chair of the History department; and Arleen Fields, assistant director of Library Services.
