Michael I. Niman: Weaponized Social Media and the War on Verifiable Reality

[LECTURE] Turn off your phone for this: Michael I. Niman—SUNY Buffalo State professor of journalism and media studies, columnist for The Public, nationally syndicated media critic, winner of two Project Censored awards—gives a talk on Friday, November 30 at the Center for Inquiry titled “Weaponized Social Media and the War on Verifiable Reality.” Niman will argue that social media “has emerged as one of the most dangerous and destructive cultural forces, just beneath organized religion and capitalism.” Addictive both physically and psychologically, Niman argues, social media has become a tool for the spread (and acceptance of) propaganda and the commodification of people and ideas.
