MIND OVER MEDIA: ARE YOU MORE POWERFUL THAN PROPAGANDA?How did the Nazis rise to power in one of the most highly educated
nations in the world and in a democracy with a free press? They
coupled sophisticated propaganda with advances in communication
technology, enabling their powerful ideas to reach millions.
Today’s technology knows far fewer boundaries. The onslaught of
unfiltered messages confronting each of us daily via social media
and the Web challenges us to be critical consumers of information.
Join us for an election-year discussion with distinguished
journalists, speechwriters, and other newsmakers that explores
what propaganda is, when we are most susceptible to it, and how we
can best recognize and respond to biased information today.
