MSNBC anchor and correspondent Ali Velshi will deliver an Ismaili Centre International Lecture titled Mixed Messages: Fact, Fiction or Judgement at the Ismaili Centre, Burnaby on 30 January 2017.
Every day we are bombarded with news stories from around the globe — everything from the latest scientific medical breakthroughs, to statistics on climate change, to images of violence and sound bytes from politicians and pundits. At times, these messages can be contradictory.
MSNBC anchor and correspondent Ali Velshi will deliver an Ismaili Centre International Lecture in which he explores how news outlets make sense of it all, and whether they are helping or hurting the way in which we consume the news. Global National newscast anchor Dawna Friesen will moderate the event.
The Ismaili Centre International Lectures aim to foster a greater understanding of critical issues facing our communities today. These lectures encourage dialog and mutual understanding between diverse peoples, communities and faiths, while broadening intellectual horizons and fostering an appreciation of pluralism.
