EVENT DETAILS

This is part 1 of "Faking It: A 3 Part Social Series on Fake News, Misinformation and Media Bias" 

How to Keep Your Stories Straight in a Shareable Social World, Hosted by the World Affairs Council of Orange County, your trusted source of information and forum on world affairs. 

Moderated by Brian Calle, Owner, LA Weekly

Speakers: Neel Grover and Ambreen Qamar

We’ll discuss the moral complexities of companies’ use of advertising to promote their stances on political and social issues, including the companies that have gone so far as to endorse political candidates in their ads. Gain a better understanding of the influence our media consumption has on us and how companies are interacting with their customers. We’ll also touch on the role of social media "influencers" in politics and social issues, with a focus on companies like Patagonia, Gillette, Northface, and Nike.
