Americans and the Media: Sorting Fact from Fake News
On Tuesday, January 23, The Washington Post brings together top journalists, scholars and thought leaders to discuss how Americans view the media’s role in our modern democracy. The event builds on a survey of more than 19,000 adults in the United States, conducted by Gallup, Inc. and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, that reveals the most comprehensive picture to date of Americans' usage and attitudes toward the media. The program will explore what makes people trust some news sources over others, the debate about regulating digital and social media platforms, and whether the concept of a neutral press can survive in an era of hyper-partisanship.
