You can’t be well-informed about the media and journalism if you don’t pay attention to the stellar work of CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter. Through his must-watch Sunday morning show, Reliable Sources, which examines the week’s top media stories, and his must-read Reliable Sources newsletter, Stelter’s media literacy work shines light on real news amid the cacophony of noise and nonsense of a presidency that seeks to demonize journalists and spreads accusations of fake news. Stelter will be in conversation with Dawna Friesen, anchor of Global National.

Wednesday, January 31
Doors open 6:30pm  |  Discussion 7:00pm  |  Reception 8:30pm
