Peter Coyote: Lifting the Fog of Fake News

Four Prescriptions For An Ailing Body Politic: From the Vietnam War to the War on Truth

Inaccuracies in the media are nothing new, especially when they originate from corporate or military interests.

But the current “fake news” era seems to have amplified the art of distortion, bluster, propaganda and outright lying.

The recent Ken Burns documentary series on the Vietnam War highlighted the pervasive use of falsehoods intended to fool the American public.

For the good of all, what might be done to lessen this pervasive problem?

Actor and author Peter Coyote was the narrator of the Burns Vietnam War series, and has long been thinking about the use and misuse of messages in politics and beyond.

Join him and TNS host Steve Heilig in the Commonweal Gallery for a discussion of how we might clear the real fog of fake news.
