January 30 – “Truth be Told” Cross-Disciplinary Panel Discussion Held at Baruch
In a media landscape marred by false equivalency, have we lost sight of the existence and value of facts? How are facts identified and tested in medicine, business, law and journalism and what can we all learn about information quality?

On January 30, Baruch College hosted a panel discussion and analysis exploring these questions. Moderated by Geneva Overholser, Senior Fellow, Center on Communication Leadership and Policy, USC Annenberg, the panel included Jane Aiken, Associate Dean for Experiential Education and Professor of Law at Georgetown; Margaret Sullivan, Public Editor at The New York Times; Harold E. Varmus, M.D., Director of the National Cancer Institute, Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1989; Amy Whitaker, Full-Time Faculty, Art Business, Sotheby’s International.
