January 24, 2017 – Faith & Society: Fake News, Truth As a Faith Value
– with Scott Maxwell and Mark Pinsky
Season 10, Episode 4
One of today’s guests calls it, “news for the gullible.” On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and truth and how that relates to responsible journalism. It has become known as “fake news,” and it seems that it is being distributed at epidemic levels. What does faith have to say about the importance of telling the truth? And what is our responsibility as good citizens to seek out responsible journalism and accurate information? We’ll talk about it with two award-winning and highly respected journalists today. We’ll ask of them how each of us can be better consumers of news and information. Of course, the three of us will add our faith perspectives to the conversation, as well. Journalists Scott Maxwell (above, left)and Mark Pinsky (above, right) join us today for a lively and very important conversation about overcoming the problem of “fake news,” – you’ll want to hear this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
