Due to low media culture and catchy sensational headlines, fake news goes viral and significantly distorts reality. Representatives of major media outlets, media culture experts, and Russian and foreign media policy-makers will discuss where fake news comes from, how it spreads and, most importantly, what goal it pursues.
