News & Brews: Global Journalists @ Monday Night Garage

Where do we find real facts in a new era of social media hoaxes and fake news stories? We're scratching our heads, wondering what to read and what to believe. 

Let's have a beer (free limited-edition pint glass included!) and talk with journalists from around the world about their challenges of accurately reporting the news in times of social media and fake news.

Featuring:

FREDRICKA WHITFIELD, Anchor, CNN US

In conversation with:

Maya Aidan, New 13, Israel

Patrick Mathangani, Citizen TV, Kenya

Jiuk Song, TV Chosun, South Korea

                                                   Emir Can Soysal, CNN, Turkey

This program is very important for media professionals as well as it is for the public in general who depend on the news outlets to stay up to date on what’s happening in Atlanta and around the world.

Registration includes hors d’oeuvres, one drink ticket and a World Affairs Council pint glass.
