These are interesting times for journalists and consumers of news. Access to news is 24/7. No longer are the morning newspaper and the nightly news our only go-to sources. Nine to ten of us get some form of news online. Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults get news from social media. Newspapers have been hit hard but are still a critical part of the American news landscape. Local television news has lost viewers but still garners more viewers than cable and network news programs. It’s become overwhelming. What’s fake news, what’s real, and how do you know the difference? Join us for a lively panel discussion about something that affects us all. Dr. Blevins is head of the Journalism department at the University of Cincinnati, where he teaches media law, ethics and social media, and journalism. Danny Cross is the editor in chief at CityBeat, which has won national awards for news writing, investigative reporting, and arts writing. Libby Cunningham is the social media reporter and producer at WCPO-TV and WCPO.com. Tom McKee, a multimedia journalist at WCPO, specializing in government, business and education, serves on the national board of the Society of Professional Journalists.

Enjoy appetizers, desserts, and wine amid works of art at the Indian Hill home of Jon and Ann Keeling. The transitional home sits in a valley on five-plus heavily wooded acres. Their collection consists primarily of local art, with a number of drawings and paintings by Paul Chidlaw, plus modern and impressionist art including original black-and-white photography, paintings, drawings, mixed media, silkscreen works, and sculpture.
