“3 Ways to Fix a Broken News Industry”

Our TED talk for this Saturday is very relevant to today’s news by Lara Setrakian, entitled, “3 Ways to fix a broken news industry.”  Something is very wrong with the news industry. And trust in the media has hit an all-time low; we're inundated with sensationalist stories; and consistent, high-quality reporting is scarce, says Lara in this very timely talk that was given this year. And in the talk she shares three ways we can fix the news to better inform all of us about the very complex issues of our time.

Lara is a journalist who is building innovative news platforms that stand ready to engage and explain the complexity of our world.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise. 

Everyone is welcome to these free sessions. 

A discussion will take place after the lecture.
