How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference?
According to the 2018 Louisiana Survey, when it comes to trusting news organizations, more Louisiana residents put their faith in local media than national media outlets. Despite that trust, only 36 percent of the state’s news consumers say local news deals fairly with both sides.
So, why is there so much mistrust of the news media? Where are consumers primarily getting their news? How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on a special encore presentation of “News about the News” airing Wednesday, December 26 at 7pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.
