We’ve reached a crisis of trust in our society’s sources of information just as the lines between traditional media and Internet media have all but vanished. At the same time, more powerful platforms designed to help us sort through information may have inadvertently empowered us to view only information that we prefer or that reinforces our own biases. A sort of societal tribalism is emerging, leading to increased polarization. Solutions to these problems are far more complex than most are willing to believe. Our panel will explore these questions and what we can do about it.
