Media giants, Steven Brill and Gordon Crovitz, and teachers will answer reporters' questions about fake news and how to address this in schools and homes

Topic: Is there a crisis of misinformation in education? How can students learn how to tell good reporting from bad? Myth from fact? Former Wall Street Journal publisher, Gordon Crovitz, and CourtTV founder, Steven Brill, join teachers and curriculum experts to answer questions about the role our schools play in media literacy. Panelists, Crovitz and Brill, are co-founders of NewsGuard which ranks source credibility of online news, frequently issuing reports on major issues such as the Black Lives Matter movement covered in Newsweek. NewsGuard has joined forces with Turnitin in teaching students how to discern fact from fiction.

For Reporters - How this Works

  • Reporters, send questions ahead of time or during the panel. We ask the panelists and send to you -- and you only -- a time-stamped video transcript (here's a sample) with your specific responses. Unscripted. Unedited. Just for you.
  • Reporters may attend but need not be present (as long as your questions have been sent ahead of time). We're trying to save you time and give you great access.
  • Yes, we'll make connections for you to the panelists if you need more than the panel provided.
  • The first 20 minutes are open for general questions and open to an audience. When we get into the private questions, the audience is dismissed so that no one else has access to your questions.
