Select Talk: Politics and Journalism: Is it Truth or is it "Newspeak"?
Join Zoom Meeting Meeting ID: 959 7269 6065 Passcode: Friends
How distinct are the lines between fact and fiction? In this year's Select Talk program, Friends Select community members will discuss the idea of truth in politics, in an ever-changing world of social media and news information. This program is part of our broader desire to invite our extended community—alumni, local experts, current and former faculty, current and former parents/guardians, and students—into conversation around critical issues affecting our society. Moderated by Jim Friedlich, this panel will feature Amanda Bennett P'07, Lucy Bustamante P'30, P'33, and August Dichter '15.
