***Due to the potential impact from Hurricane Florence, More Than the Score has been cancelled for Saturday, September 15th. Please stay tuned as we may reschedule the event.***
If you wanted to build a machine that would distribute propaganda to millions of people, distract them from important issues, energize hatred and bigotry, erode social trust, undermine respectable journalism, foster doubts about science, and engage in massive surveillance all at once, you would make something a lot like Facebook.

Speaker: Siva Vaidhyanathan, Robertson Family Professor of Media Studies, College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences
