New program! Rush to Judgement: Finding Truth in A Viral World

Finding Truth in A Viral World

Rush to Judgment is an examination of the documentary film of the same name.  The subject is the brief encounter at the Lincoln Memorial that resulted in a viral video and social media mayhem.  It brought death threats and hate directed at teenagers from Covington Catholic High School who came face-to-face with adult protesters.  What can journalists and media consumers learn from this case and what does it tell us about the current divide in American politics? The lecture features director Steve Oldfield and producer Ryan Anderson examining these and other important issues concerning today’s viral media mashing up with the news media.
