media summit

This year, SUNY Oswego's Lewis B. O'Donnell Media Summit took on "fake news." The summit is a cooperative effort of the college's communication and broadcasting community -- both faculty and students. Part of a broader set of activities to give SUNY Oswego students access to alumni and other professionals in media, the summit features four panelists and one moderator.

The panel, of White House and other broadcast news industry veterans, spoke on the politically and emotionally charged subject of "fake news." This year's panelists included media professionals on the national scene -- all with past local connections -- as well as a local talk radio host and a SUNY Oswego alumna.

The 2014 Dr. Lewis B. O'Donnell Media Summit featured Al Roker, weatherman and a host of NBC's "Today" show and a 1976 Oswego graduate; media icon Charlie Rose of CBS-TV's "This Morning" and the "Charlie Rose" show on PBS; and Connie Schultz, a syndicated award-winning columnist. Moderator Ken Auletta is writer and media critic for The New Yorker as well as a 1963 Oswego graduate.

Here is audio of the panel discussion, recorded October 16 at SUNY Oswego.
