Since the 2016 presidential election campaign, there has been a heated debate about 'fake news' and the role it plays in politics in the United States and elsewhere. Has the Internet made it harder for citizens to distinguish between what is true and what is false? Were online social networks and platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter too easily exploited by malicious actors to spread false stories? And just how big a role did Russia play in Donald Trump's election? Joining us to discuss these questions are two very experienced journalists and broadcasters, Anne Applebaum and Ted Koppel as well as The Information's CEO, Jessica Lessin.

The Hoover Institution hosts "Cardinal Conversations: Anne Applebaum, Ted Koppel, and Jessica Lessin on 'Real and Fake News''" on Monday, April 9, 2018 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm PST.
