Event Details

Alternative Facts & Fake News





Ford Hall Forum is sounding the alarm for threats to the First Amendment, particularly regarding attempts from the federal government to invalidate and restrict journalism. We’ve seen American reporters and photographers covering demonstrations reprimanded as participating dissenters, not to mention entire network dubbed “fake news” by the current administration. But have we also come to the point where the electorate must fact-check even well-known news outlets?





Suffolk University Associate Professor of Communication & Journalism Deborah Geisler interviews Matt Viser (Boston Globe) and Joe Mathieu (WBZ) on recent disturbing trends in the treatment of reporters and the Fourth Estate as a whole.
