Beware of fake news!

This Event is organized in cooperation with the daily “Die Presse”

Lecture and discussion as part of the Wirtschaft Wissenschaft Unplugged series

The media are powerful. They act as commentators, critical voices, and watchdogs. As the “fourth branch of government,” the media influence politics and society. But media consumption is changing. Traditional outlets such as newspapers, TV, and radio are losing ground to digital, highly personalized channels. Does selective media consumption lead to an increase in fake news and conspiracy theories? What’s the media’s response? How independent are they? We’ll be discussing the power of the media and its limits.
