On January 13 at 6:30pm, The LWV is pleased to present an interactive virtual event that offers resources to help evaluate social media streams for accuracy, bias, and relevancy.
With a mixture of presentation, polls, large and small group discussion, you will get an overview of the digital media landscape and resources you can use to help become a more informed consumer and producer of digital media content.
Please Join us!
To attend the Zoom session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a zoom link. Or you can attend the live-stream on our Facebook page. The event will also be recorded and uploaded to the LWV of Kittitas County YouTube channel.
The event is hosted and moderated by League member, Katherine Murphy, and will start out with poll to see how well we all did on this 2018 PEW Quiz on Fact vs. Opinion of News Statements. So please take this quiz prior to the presentation! She will also touch on the loss of local newspapers and journalists. For an in-depth look at this troubling trend, see this Last Week Tonight Episode.
