Increased polarization and intolerance dividing societies, false beliefs undermining democratic decisions, failures to inform public policy with relevant expertise, and citizen mistrust in institutions and in one another are some of the consequences of fake news. In this day long symposium sponsored by the Center for Information Technology and Society at UC Santa Barbara, a select group of scholars, journalists, and media industry professionals come together to discuss the quest to combat fake news.

2:30-4:30PM Panel Discussion in Alumni Hall, Mosher Alumni House
