Panel 1: Journalism in the Post-Fact Age

With the rise of fake news and distrust of journalistic neutrality, the very idea of a fact has come under attack. How can organizations and reporters re-establish a common ground?

About the Summit:

The Democracy Project: Journalism in the Age of Alt-Facts 

In the age of alt-facts, deeply researched reporting is more crucial than ever to the viability of an informed citizenry and a healthy democracy. From October 20 - 22 writers and journalists will gather in Banff to discuss practical next steps in the critical conversation around media and democracy.

This weekend of conversation is open to the public and attached to an accompanying five day intensive residency on Investigative Journalism.
