Cracking Down on Fake News
Sally Lehrman, director of Journalism Ethics, has been quoted in multiple publications, such as The Guardian and The Gospel Herald regarding her leadership of The Trust Project, an organization that seeks to restore trust in the media by establishing indicators of accuracy and truthfulness in news sources. The Trust Project was also referenced in a Forbes article on fake news.
“In today’s burgeoning and chaotic news ecosystem, it is difficult to parse truth from falsehood, wisdom from spin… We have seen a decline in trust in the media over a period of decades and the polarization across what types of media are trusted,” Lehrman said.
