9:30-11:00 AM, Saturday, May 6
Council Chambers, Minnetonka Community Center

Fake news is not just entertainment; it has power over public opinion and probably played a significant role in the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election. Lindsay Matts-Benson, an expert in media and information literacy from the University of Minnesota, offers us an intriguing and relevant presentation on spotting fake news and how to respond. Social media including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, YouTube and other news platforms will be examined. Ms. Matts-Benson will give tips on how to determine fact from fiction, to vet sources and figure out if outlets provide reputable coverage.
Free and open to the public. Hosted by LWV Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Hopkins.
Following the program, LWV MEPH members will move to the Shady Oak Room for our Annual Business Meeting and lunch. The meeting will run from 11:00-11:30 and include a review of our year, the MEPH Board Election, adoption of MEPH budget, 2017-2018 Program Planning and membership renewal. Dues remain at $65.
Lunch will be served at 11:30, catered by Davanni's. Cost: $10 at the door. Please RSVP to Arlene Nystuen at 952-934-2133 by May 4 to reserve your lunch.
