Fake News: What Is It, and Why Should We Care? A Panel Discussion

What is fake news? It’s at the forefront of national discussion. It seems like the president is accusing a different news source every day of being fake news. But at the end of the day, what is fake news? How do we, as informed citizens, decipher fake news from real news? How does the information we read influence our digital selves? This interdisciplinary panel discussion about fake news and how it influences all professions is led by PLACE Student Fellow Micaela Lueders and includes faculty from mass communications, education, biology, and political science.
