The School of Journalism’s “My Life As” speaker series presents award-winning news correspondent Glenn Kessler, who leads the fact-checking team at The Washington Post. On a daily basis, he examines the statements of political figures and public officials, trying to discern the truth behind the rhetoric. Kessler, one of the first major fact-checkers in the country, will explain how he awards “Pinocchios” to offenders.
Kessler will speak and answer questions on Thursday, March 9, at 7:30 pm in the Student Activities Center, Sidney Gelber Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 pm.
