The School of Life Melbourne Secular Sermon Series: Christine Kenneally ON LYING
It used to be that the ability to tell the truth was the keystone to an honourable life, but in the last 20 years that has changed. Today, your integrity is as dependent, if not more so, on your ability to recognise lies.
Award-winning journalist Christine Kenneally looks at the nature of contemporary misinformation – and discusses tools to detect when someone in the media is lying, and when they are not.
A co-presentation with Melbourne Conversations.
