Appreciate the positive feedback, Karen. Thank you. LInda can give you a bit of assist, perhaps do a mock presentation, to make sure you get the picture.

I enjoyed it but I thought we would get more amplification from her on the issues the media has with disinformation and what they are doing about it.

The talk was very interesting and the speaker was excellent. Could media run stories through a filter so that something like the Good House Keeping seal of approval was attached to truthful stories that had been verified as opposed to having us question every news story? An independent fact checking agency would give a lot of people peace of mind.

Thanks to Robin Fields for a most informative presentation – Surviving in an Age of Disinformation. These days it has become almost a requirement to make a true/false decision for each piece of information we encounter. Using your guidance and pointers, the process of information sorting can be put to a test. In the question/answer section of the program, Greg Sanders did a terrific job of presenting the question, and the answers from Robin were excellent.

We felt that the opening remarks provided by the speaker regarding the disinformation subject were too brief and missed examples of good and bad practices readily found today from public and private sector sources. Her check list for self-determination did not include independent website verification sources (e.g., snopes.com and truthorfiction.com). Our particular question regarding principles, guidance and governance needed to mitigate the problem at federal and state levels was not really addressed.

Good feedback, Allen. I agree with you regarding her opening remarks; they did miss the major issues of the day.
