EP 10 Fake News

By Neil Andersen

Carol Arcus and Neil Andersen from the Association for Media Literacy gather each Monday evening to look at 21st Century culture and current events through a media literacy lens. From politics to popular culture, we guarantee that you won't leave an episode thinking quite the same way ever again.

Fake news is old news, but has become fashionable now. It is a consequence of electronic media and the web, where there are many more news sources.

In this episode, Carol Arcus and Neil Andersen begin to explore the emergence of fake news, how to recognize it and, in the end, why we should care about it.
