DemocracyXchange asks:

Fake news leading to real death. Period. Full stop. The seriousness with which we need to truly understand and do something about this moment cannot be underscored. The only thing worth asking is, “So what are we gonna do about it?” Hear from our keynote speaker Maria Ressa, journalist, founder, The Rappler, and Time Magazine’s Person of the Year 2018, who is caught between a platform monopoly and an authoritarian regime but holding firm and fast while shining a light on this existential moment. After her talk she will be interviewed by Lisa LaFlamme, Chief News Anchor/Senior Editor CTV National News.
