Ask yourself: Can the public navigate a sea of disinformation without a compass? Are the media “the enemy of the American people,” as President Trump has declared? Will the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution continue to protect journalists as they perform their jobs? Can democracy survive without a free and responsible press? Jane E. Kirtley, Director of the Silha Center for the Study of Media Ethics and Law at the U of M, digs deep into the role of the media in an era of “believe me” and disinformation.


This is one in an ongoing MCC program series under the banner “Driven to Discover.” The series features University of Minnesota faculty and students sharing current research and programming at the University.
