Sorting the News from the Chaff

 Paradoxically, the Internet has made it both easier and harder to find 'truth.'  Almost everything we could ever want to know is available online, but how can we tell the good sources from the bad ones, discern fact from assumption, and distinguish 'fake news' from the real thing? And how can we effectively communicate with others when discussing or debating public issues in the news? Veteran journalist and educator Mark Timney will explore these questions and share  strategies for evaluating news sources in the rapidly changing digital information age. A Vermont Humanities Council event hosted by Craftsbury Public Library. Craftsbury Common, Craftsbury Public Library, 12 Church Lane, 6:00 pm. Susan O'Connell, (802) 586-9683.
