The C+MRC in partnership with the National Association for Media Literacy Education and truTV will present a special screening and discussion of Adam Ruins Everything on Election Day (Tuesday), November 6th from 11:30-2:00pm in University Hall 1030. Your host is C+MRC founder, Dr. Vanessa Greenwood. All within the Montclair State University community are welcome. Stay for some or all of the session. No registration required.*
In Adam Ruins Everything host and investigative comedian Adam Conover embarks on a comically inventive yet unrelentingly serious quest to reveal the hidden truths behind everything you know and love. Tackling topics ranging from the workplace and voting to forensic science and security, he gives you not just fun facts to share with your friends, but information that will make you see the world in a whole new way. If knowledge is power, then Adam Conover will have you laughing all the way to the top.
