Combating "fake" news: The role and responsibilities of ad agencies, tech companies and politicians in restoring trust in civic institutions
What is the role and responsibility of advertising agencies, tech companies and politicians in restoring trust in civic institutions? What part should they play in combating “fake” news? How can partnerships around new technologies, including virtual reality and augmented reality, play a positive role in disseminating information in order to keep an informed citizenry, a central tenet of a strong democracy? As a member of the Knight Foundation and Aspen Institute commission on Trust and Democracy, the CEO of Emblematic Group, Nonny de la Peña, will lead a session exploring these themes with the intent of taking some solutions back to the next commission meeting in January of 2018.
