Media accountability in a world of disinformation
June 23, 2021, 12-1 p.m. EDT
Join the Alan Alda Centers Laura Lindenfeld and the
News Literacy Projects Alan Miller in conversation with
the Knight Foundations Paul Cheung to discuss how we can
identify and combat growing disinformation. Our conversation
springs from the Bulletins May/June magazine on how to
dial back a disinformation dystopia.


Laura Lindenfeld is the executive director of the Alan Alda
Ctr for Communicating Science, the dean of the School of
Communication & Journalism, & the vice provost for academic
strategy & planning at Stony Brook University. At the Alda
Center, Dr. Lindenfeld oversees an international leader in
science communication training, research, & education. As
dean of the School of Communication & Journalism, she leads
a team of award-winning faculty in educating multimedia

of journals, & her book was published by Columbia University
Press. She has a Ph.D. in cultural studies from the University
of California, Davis.

NLP in 2008, following a 21-year career at the Los Angeles
Times, to give middle & high school educators the tools to
teach their students how to separate fact from fiction in
the digital age. NLP is now the nations leading provider of
news literacy education. It offers programs & resources for
educators & the public to teach, learn & share the abilities
needed to be smart, active consumers of news & information &
