SUNY Oswego's 13th annual Lewis B. O'Donnell Media Summit will take on "fake news" as its discussion focus, presenting a balanced panel of White House and other broadcast news industry veterans to talk -- and, just as importantly, to listen to other viewpoints -- around the often politically and emotionally charged subject.

"Facts, Fiction, Politics and the News" will start at 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, in Waterman Theatre and will livestream via student-run WTOP-TV.

Panelists include Steven Portnoy, CBS News Radio's White House correspondent and formerly with WSYR-AM, WIXT-TV and WSTM-TV in Syracuse; Kristin Donnelly, NBC News' White House producer and formerly with WTVH-TV in Syracuse; Bob Lonsberry, WSYR-AM radio host and conservative political commentator; and SUNY Oswego alumna Trudy Perkins, class of 1993, deputy chief of staff and communications director for U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat.
