Thursday, January 18: Fake News!

Our next Lunch with League is on Thursday, January 18 at 11:00 a.m. at Rookies Sports Bar, 1635 Meridian Ave, San Jose near Hamilton Ave.

Come hear Dr. John McManus, author of Don't Be Fooled: A Citizen's Guide to News and Information in the Digital Age talk about "fake news"!!

As professional journalism recedes and anything goes on cable, talk radio and the Web, it's becoming much more difficult to know what to trust. Learning to filter today's news during the digital deluge has become a necessary life skill because the value of reliable information -- particularly news -- has never been greater. Dr McManus discusses how you can become an information detective in this confusing and challenging time.

Registration for this event is now closed.
