Talon Talks

Theme: Fake News, Real Problems

November 2, 2017, at 3 - 4:30 PM in the UC Theater

This Talon Talk, was a panel discussion centered around the theme of Fake News. The panel consisted of Allison Pollan of the Tyler Morning Telegraph, Jimmy Issac of the Longview News Journal, and Robert Sterken a Professor of Political Science here at the University of Texas at Tyler.

This was a give and take conversation from those who actually create the news daily. This forum presented an opportunity to discuss how we as individuals could combat Fake News and embrace problems that are real.

This talk was a well-attended event. Hosted by the Editor-in-Chief, Robert Sullivan, and supported by Advisor, Lorri Allen and staff.
