Fake News, Profit-driven Media, and Confirmation Bias

New York Times best-selling author and journalist Wendell Potter has covered Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court. After a long career in health insurance public relations, he had a crisis of conscience and blew the whistle on a corrupt industry in his book Deadly Spin. His latest book is Nation on the Take. For the Knox County Public Library’s Truth and Consequences Symposium on July 28, 2017, Potter’s presentation is entitled “Fake News, Profit-driven Media, and Confirmation Bias.”
