Overload: Finding the Truth in Today's Deluge of News

Evening Details

6:30 PM Reception
7:00 PM Program & Book Signing
CBS Radio Performance Showroom

Veteran journalist Bob Schieffer doesn’t mince words when he says the current state of journalism in the digital age is “a national security threat.” Nearly 67 percent of Americans now get some form of news from Facebook—an outlet that doesn’t employ the rigorous vetting standards that have long been a cornerstone of objective and independent journalism.

Just as alarming, we are now getting news that is false by design. How can we separate the truth from propaganda? And how can our democracy survive in the lightning-fast pace of the digital age? Schieffer offers answers in his provocative new book—Overload: Finding the Truth in Today’s Deluge of News.
