Service Description

As we move closer to another hotly contested election, we will face an increased onslaught of news and information. And with the use of artificial intelligence, it will become even more challenging to differentiate between accurate and false news. As we look at making our decisions about where we stand on issues and candidates, how can we be sure that we are getting our information from reliable sources? Presenter Beth Heldebrant, of Ad Fontes Media, will discuss a tool that rates media for bias and reliability. This includes misinformation and disinformation. Ms. Heldebrant will explain how people can use the tool to guide them in finding reliable and unbiased sources of news. Ad Fontes Media is a public benefit corporation based in Colorado. Since 2018 it has analyzed thousands of print media/ news sources and TV/ video programs. A simple version of this tool is available online.
