Reporter to Give Presentation on “Fake News” at Livingston Library

LIVINGSTON, NJ — Daily Record/USA Today Network reporter William Westhoven will address the crucially important topic of “fake news” at Livingston Public Library on Sept. 28 at 7 p.m.

Westhoven will present an overview of what defines “fake news;” its history; how the internet has blurred the lines between traditional journalism, prime-time punditry and outright propaganda; why people invent stories out of whole cloth, and why no one reported on FDR's polio. This program will be presented in a strictly apolitical environment and will include only civil discourse and non-partisan discussion.

Westhoven has been a journalist since 1989 and has served The Daily Record as a reporter, editor and columnist since 1994. He is currently a municipal reporter covering all towns and topics in Morris County and is frequently heard on WMTR radio political news programs.

“Making Sense of Fake News” is free and open to the public, no reservations required. Early arrival is suggested for parking purposes.
