     Consumers of News Need to Get More Demanding Again is the topic of the Roundtable discussion at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 2000 S Solano, from 10:30-11:30am.  Walter Rubel, editorial page editor of the Las Cruces Sun-News will be the discussion leader.  Traditional news outlets have some form of oversight by industry standards and FCC to present fair and accurate information. Facebook and Twitter have none, as was evident in the 2016 election. We need to move beyond that history and develop some new norms for these new social media outlets—as they affect the integrity of our democracy.
