It’s complicated, but the media plays a fundamental role in any democracy, and all eyes are on the news on Election Day.

From traditional news anchors, to independent reporters, we have minute-to-minute election updates available right at our fingertips. But this overabundance of information can easily lead to confusion, misinformation, and the creation of echo chambers. 

So what’s a person to do?

We try to break it all down at noon Thursday, Oct. 20 at the Old State House. Join CTNewsJunkie Editor-in-Chief Christine Stuart; Mara Suttmann-Lea, Asst. Prof. of American Politics at Connecticut College; and Belinha de Abreu, President of the International Council for Media Literacy for an in-depth conversation moderated by Anita Ford-Saunders.

The event is free, but we are asking you to please register if you plan on attending.
