Getting it Straight: How to fight fake news

With the rise of digital communication, social media has become a major source for the consumption of news and current events. Yet with click-bait headlines, anonymous sources, and the loose use of the term “fake news,” trust in the news media is in decline. Hear from journalists at BustleRefinery29, and MSNBC discuss how their outlets are covering the news, how they decide what to cover, and their advice on how to wisely consume the news. RSVP
