Media Manipulation and the "Post-Truth" Approach to Information

Nickie Phillips

Join Jason Stanley, distinguished professor of philosophy at Rutgers University, and a leading epistemologist, in a lecture and discussion about media manipulation and the right-wing "post-truth" approach to information.  In a series of New York Times articles, Stanley has described the current social  "...expectation... [that] any statement made either by a politician or by a media outlet is a false ideological distortion."  This fundamental lack of faith in political statements has devolved into a lack of public accountability: do individuals no longer blame politicians for making false claims or peddling inconsistent political messages ("flip-flopping")?    When?  Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, 1:40 p.m.

Where?  Rm. L.61 of the "new building" at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, 524 W. 59th St., New York, NY

Lecture sponsored by the Philosophy Department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
