Sound Science and Sound Journalism in an Era of Fake News on Vimeo

Join Island Press, in partnership with the Security and Sustainability Forum, for today’s webinar about disinformation and obscuring scientific truths. The webinar recording features veteran journalist Carey Gillam, who is Research Director for the non-profit U.S. Right to Know and author of Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer, and the Corruption of Science.

Carey is joined by Dr. Dana Barr, Environmental Health Professor at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health for a conversation on the impacts of glyphosate on our food and health and how this research serves as a case study for the importance of scientific and journalistic rigor. The discussion was moderated by journalist Paul Thacker and will be followed by an audience question and answer session.
