In this contentious political landscape, with an overwhelming amount of relentless news, the public is having a harder time finding accurate sources of information. According to a recent Gallup/Knight Foundation Survey, more Americans have a negative views of the news media, with charges of bias and unfairness growing considerably from a generation ago. The Paley Center is gathering journalists and experts to explore media bias from all political sides, trying to determine if it is fact or fiction. Our panelists will assess what this mistrust means for our political discourse and democracy, as well as examine how it is possible to be a well-informed citizen in an era of fake news.
