Battling Deep Fakes & Misinformation - Media's Role & Responsibility
In an environment where misinformation, partisanship, & deep fakes abound, the role of the journalist has shifted from observer/reporter to advocacy & truth-telling. This panel discussion will explore why & where these lines are drawn - & what the future will look like.

Join Aaron Kwittken (he/him), Founder & CEO of PRophet. & his panel featuring:

-- John Avlon, Senior Political Analyst @ CNN
-- Sara Fischer, Media Reporter @ Axios
-- David Kirkpatrick, Founder & Editor-in-Chief @ Techonomy Media
-- Brian J. Karem, Sr. WH Reporter @ Playboy, Author, "Free the Press"

Discussion questions include:

-- What, exactly, is the role of media when it comes to battling disinformation? Is this their responsibility, and/or to what extent?

--The role of the journalist, traditionally, is observer & storyteller. Now, advocacy is part of their work. Where is the line between advocacy & reporting - & how do you expect it to continue to change?

-- How do newsrooms change fact checking & reporting processes in an environment in which deep fakes abound?

-- What is the role of technology in countering disinformation/uncovering deep fakes?

-- How has reporting changed with a new presidential administration?
