Fueling Extremism in a Wired World

Sep 27, 2016
7:00 PM
New York

Panel discussion: 7:00 to 8:30 pm
On-site Reception: 8:30 to 9:30 pm

This Paley Center for Media program, in association with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, will examine the evolution of propaganda in media from the days of Nazi Germany to the present. Nazis used radio and film; today’s extremists use social media to foment hate, recruit followers, and incite violence. In recent months, “lone-wolf” aggressors have carried out deadly attacks without any in-person contact with terror networks. What responsibilities do journalists, technology companies, governments, and individuals have to keep the world safe?  Key experts will lead a conversation about the tension between free speech and incendiary propaganda, alongside contextual news clips from the Paley Center’s archive.
