Misinformation and Political Propaganda

Cedar Mill Community Library
12505 NW Cornell Road
Portland, OR 97229, US (map)



These days, it seems like the news can be overwhelming, with conflicting stories from politicians, news sources and other media. Join us for a timely workshop led by local librarian Donna Cohen. She uses real world examples of political ads, news headlines, graphs and charts, the effect of word choice in messaging, statistical data, and other types of information to teach you to distinguish truth from fiction and become your own "fact-checker."
