Evaluating the News Seminar Series
January 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until February 3rd, 2022
Two-thirds of Americans admit that the news they consume has bias. In today’s world of 24/7 news coverage, advertising sponsorships, hype, and frequent retractions, how can you sift out the facts to make your own informed decisions? How do you recognize bias and opinion? How can you determine the motives of an article or publication? Join the New Ulm Public Library for our next seminar series as we present a no holds barred in-depth analysis of news media companies, fact checking, click bait, fake news, misinformation, and bias. The seminar series will begin on Thursday, January 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s meeting room and will meet weekly for five weeks. Each seminar will last about 1 hour and will feature real life, happening now, news articles for analysis. We hope you’ll join us for this informative and empowering series!
