Milken Institute Global Conference 2017 Highlights
Fake News Negotiating Politics and Society in a Post-Truth World

Once the province of supermarket tabloids, intentionally false news is having a big cultural moment -- or possibly something more dangerous and permanent -- in today's hyper-partisan world. Not coincidentally, Oxford Dictionaries chose "post-truth" as its 2016 Word of the Year. Our panel examines the consequences of living in an age of politicized truth, "alternative facts" and selective reality.

A Conversation With George W. Bush

George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States and founder of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, sits down with Institute Chairman Michael Milken to discuss his work with veterans, the fight against AIDS in Africa, and promoting women's rights since leaving office.
