An expert panel at SUNY Oswego will discuss "Fighting Fake News: Navigating the New Norms in Journalism" at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, in the college's Sheldon Hall ballroom.

The panel will include WRVO News Director Catherine Loper and SUNY Oswego communication studies faculty members Brian Moritz, Arvind Diddi and Jason Zenor. Michael Riecke of the communication studies department will moderate the event, which is sponsored by the college's School of Communication, Media and the Arts.

The panel discussion will explore the causes and impacts of the rise of "fake news," as well as what educators, students, journalists and citizens can do to promote healthy journalism and news literacy.

Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to take part in the conversation. Parking requires a permit; for those without a current SUNY Oswego parking sticker, visit oswego.edu/parking for more information.
