The Infodemic & Endangered

Monday, November 14, 2022
7:30pm — 8:30pm PT
Los Angeles Central Library

The Infodemic, by Joel Simon & Robert Mohaney, explores the mechanisms of a modern brand of “censorship through noise,” looking at government censorship and state control—such as the jailing of critics and restricting the flow of information—leading to the influx of misinformation to the public we see today.

The HBO documentary Endangered, directed by Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady, examines the same ideas, chronicling a year in the life of four journalists reporting inside Mexico, Brazil and the United States—three democratic nations where the view of the press is rapidly deteriorating.

Join Joel Simon, Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady as they discuss the state of the world through the lens of journalism and the plight of newsrooms shutter around them, misinformation proliferates, and world leaders brazenly suppress free speech.

 

Please note: Face masks are required in LA City Government buildings, regardless of vaccination status, on library premises.
