Title Details

Running Time
58 Min.
Now that the internet provides the the biggest megaphone ever for just about anyone to spread the news, how can anyone be sure what they read is factual? In this roundtable discussion from 2013, presented by the 92nd Street Y, BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith hosts Rachel Sklar, New York Times columnist Brian Stelter, and journalist icon Dan Rather as they dig into how 21st century news is being filtered, repackaged, and spun on popular platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and more. Rather gives a valuable historical perspective, reminding listeners of a fairness doctrine between the 3 major TV networks that has been all but eradicated in the era of Fox News and MSNBC. What becomes apparent to all the commentators is that news media is in a transitionary period between the fall of traditional print journalism and the Wild West atmosphere that dominates current online news outlets.
