Brooke Gladstone - The Trouble with Reality: A Rumination on Moral Panic in Our Time

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 4, 2017 at 5:00 pm

With the explosion of “fake news” and “alternative facts,” not to mention a president who communicates via “diversion” tweets, “trial balloon” tweets, and “deflection” tweets, even the most basic notion of reality feels under assault in this new media landscape. In a frank and incisive discussion of both traditional and new media in the age of Trump, Gladstone, co-host and managing editor of On the Media, expands on the Peabody Award-winning radio show and podcast’s mission of demystifying the making of the news. Drawing on ideas from public intellectuals including Hannah Arendt, Walter Lippmann, and Jonathan Swift, she develops a framework for navigating the world of Trump’s tweets. Gladstone will be in conversation with Margaret Sullivan a Media Columnist for The Washington Post.
