Author and media critic Brian Stelter, formerly with the New York Times and CNN, will speak on “Dismantling Misinformation: Building Trust in Media and Democracy’” at Keene State College on April 4, followed by an opportunity for questions and conversation.
Stelter is featured as part of the Keene State College Sidore Foundation Lecture series. The event is free and open to the public, and begins at 7 p.m. in Norma Walker Hall, on the first floor of the Alumni Center, 229 Main St.

The theme for the 2023 Sidore series is inspired by the book, “The Misinformation Age: How False Beliefs Spread,” published in 2018 by Cailin O’Connor and James Weatherall.
Stelter is a former anchor of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” a Sunday morning talk show, and a former media reporter at The New York Times. He is the author of “Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth” (2020) and is the Walter Shorenstein Media & Democracy Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy.
Kim Lauffer, a member of the Keene State journalism faculty and a former professor of Stelter’s, will moderate the Q&A.
