On Tuesday, Checkology® students at two NYC schools saw The Lifespan of A Fact — followed by a talkback, moderated by NLP founder and CEO Alan Miller (left), with director Leigh Silverman and actors Bobby Cannavale, Daniel Radcliffe and Cherry Jones. The topic: “true” versus “true-ish.”
The 30-minute Q&A covered a number of topics, such as the importance of the arts and the ability to enjoy a movie “based on a true story” without looking up every fact upon leaving the theater. The actors also had a strong message for the students, describing how their roles in the play had strengthened their respect for journalism and for real-life fact-checkers. In fact, in preparation for this part, Radcliffe shadowed a fact-checker at The New Yorker.
“It gave me incredible faith,” Radcliffe said, noting that he was “inspired” by the “people out there who are doing this job and doing it amazingly rigorously.”
