Please join WITF and York County Libraries for an exciting informational program:  Trusting News: Defining Credibility & Trustworthiness in Journalism

With information and misinformation overwhelming social media users, it’s important for media organizations to ensure their listeners/viewers/readers can trust their reporting, especially during the times we are living in with a global pandemic, civil unrest and an upcoming election. Questions like, “How do people decide what news is trustworthy?” or “How can journalists influence what users consume and share?” are popping up in communities across the region.

To help answer those questions and more, WITF, in partnership with York County Libraries, presents a panel discussion and audience Q&A Wednesday, October 14 at 7pm LIVE on WITF’s YouTube Channel.

Join a lively conversation, hosted by WITF’s news director, Tim Lambert, as we define disinformation and present practical everyday tips to help you think critically about the news you consume. Are today’s newsrooms balanced, accessible and responsive as possible? Plus we’ll highlight the importance of ethics and funding.

Panelists include:

Lynn Walsh – Assistant Director, Trusting News
Randy Parker – Central Pennsylvania Executive Editor, USA Today Network, overseeing York Daily Record/Sunday News, Lebanon Daily News, The (Hanover) Evening Sun, Chambersburg Public Opinion, The (Waynesboro) Record Herald and (Greencastle) Echo-Pilo
Brad Bumsted – Bureau chief of The Caucus, veteran state government reporter and the author of two books on political corruption in Pennsylvania.

Have a question you’d like us to address during the conversation? Email us at discuss@witf.org.
