Journalism under attack: The phenomenon of fake news and challenges of accountability in the new media
Room Atrium, Samuel Bronfman Building (1590 Docteur Penfield), Sir George Williams Campus.
This event has been organized by the Concordia Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism Studies (CCBJS) and Le centre de recherche interdisciplinaire sur la diversité et la démocratie (CRIDAQ).
Mogato will discuss the spread of fake news in the Philippines and how this undermines the news media’s role. He addresses the question: “In a time when human rights and other fundamental freedoms in the Philippines are under the spotlight, what should journalists do to respond to the threats of fake news and the lack of accountability by purveyors of false information?”
