What can we so to help shape the future of land use, transportation, economic policy, housing, and wetland loss?

Want to help shape the future of land use, transportation, economic policy, housing, and wetland loss in Louisiana? For the past year, some of the best regional planners in the world have come to the Bayou State to gather hard data and talk with local residents and leaders about how these issues can best be addressed. See the fascinating results of this research and find out the benefits - and consequences - of pursuing alternative futures. You'll get to vote on specific options that will affect every citizen's future.

Current Topic


     12/18 - News About the News (Encore)

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.
