When the nation first heard about "fake news," it referred to false news stories planted by internet trolls trying to sow discord. The meaning has since changed as some politicians have claimed that news stories published by established media outlets were really "fake news."

The confusion has undermined political discussions nationally and that’s why it’s the topic of the seventh annual Conference on Restoring Civility to Civic Dialogue.

The conference is put on, in part, by the University of San Diego's Institute for Civil Civic Engagement. The theme of this year’s conference is "Media Literacy: Finding Truth in a Post-Truth World."

One of the featured participants of the conference is Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sonia Nazario, author of “Enrique’s Journey.”

Nazario will discuss immigration and journalism at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation on Wednesday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets can be found here. Nazario will give a presentation on "pluralism, truth and the modern media" at San Diego City College on Thursday from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

She will join Midday Edition Wednesday to discuss the importance of combating "fake news" claims.
