The place of faith in the media in an age of ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts’ is to be the focus of an event at Dublin’s University Church next week.
‘Good News: media and Faith in a Secular Age’ – which will be held on Thursday, November 14 – will include input from journalists Anne Thompson and Inés San Martín. It will be moderated by Managing Editor of The Irish Catholic, Michael Kelly.
Ms Thompson was named NBC News Chief Environmental Affairs correspondent in April 2007 and reports issues such as global warming and new technologies. Ms San Martín is the Rome Bureau Chief for Crux, a news outlet focused on the Catholic Church.
The event is due to get underway at 7.30 pm and will be followed by a reception.
