Online Media Campus Webinar: A Crash Course to Fact-Checking Journalism: Just in time for election season

15 January 2016 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

2016 will be a busy year in politics. For those journalists covering elections, that means one thing: A lot of fact-checking. Join Jane Elizabeth of the American Press Institute for an introduction on accountability and fact-checking journalism.

During this webinar, you’ll learn how fact-checking journalism is different than “regular” reporting and how to identify factual deception, especially in campaign ads and speeches.
