TORONTO, April 30, 2018 /CNW/ - In an age of misinformation, disinformation, AI and media manipulation, how can news organizations and platforms like Google build trust with audiences? The Canadian Journalism Foundation's (CJF) J-Talk Building Trust in Media explores this question on May 2 in Toronto.
Join our speakers: Richard Gingras, vice-president of news at Google, Craig Silverman, media editor with BuzzFeed News; and moderator Anna Maria Tremonti, host of CBC Radio One's The Current.
Gingras guides Google's strategies relating to the media ecosystem and oversees many of Google's news and media related products. He helped found the Trust Project, a global effort within the journalism community to ensure that high quality journalism is recognized for the credibility it deserves.
Silverman is media editor for BuzzFeed News, where he tracks the spread of misinformation. He previously founded Emergent.info, a real-time rumor tracker that was developed as part a fellowship with the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University. He also founded Regret the Error, a blog about media accuracy and the discipline of verification, that became part of the Poynter Institute for Media Studies.
This event is part of the annual J-Talks series, which explores pressing media issues.
The CJF thanks the generosity of J-Talks series sponsor BMO Financial Group, sponsor Google and in-kind supporters CISION and CPAC.
