Fake News—And How to Spot It!
April 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us for our next SPARKLE: Fake News—and How To Spot It with Newseum guide and educator Tom Meenan. Feel lost in today’s media landscape? Join Newseum Education for a free, hands-on program to sharpen your media skills. Participants will tackle buzzwords, bots, and bad actors in today’s media landscape. You’ll get clear definitions of current media terms, practical tools to identify fake and flawed news, and practice with real examples.
Tom Meenan has served as a museum guide and educator at the Newseum since 2015. He managed various facets of IT and research management at the U.S. Senate, retiring in 2012 after 32 years of service.
