Please join the French-American Foundation for a panel discussion on the recent rise of "fake news". The panel will take a comparative look at the United States and France, especially in light of France's presidential elections: Is the proliferation of "fake news" in France as significant a problem as it is in America?
Princeton historian David Bell will provide a historical perspective on "fake news" in both countries. Our panelists from Facebook, First Draft News, Politico and Le Monde.fr will address the contemporary phenomenon: Is this the end of traditional journalism? What happened to fact-checking, one of journalism's primary tenets? How do we ensure that the media remains the "fourth pillar of democracy"?

James Graff, a foreign news editor at The Wall Street Journal and former Paris bureau chief for Time, will moderate the discussion.

DAVID BELL
Historian of early modern France, Professor of History, Princeton University

HADAS GOLD
Media reporter at Politico

AINE KERR
Manager of Journalism Partnerships at Facebook
AIMEE RINEHART
