L964 Fall 2018 Fake News: Separating Fact From Fiction in our Internet Based World
Wednesday, 11:50–1:15, Sept 26
Instructor: Stan Schretter
It used to be easy. “Fake” news was the purview of supermarket tabloids. “Fake” emails usually asked for us to send someone $1,000, so we could collect a newly found inheritance of $1M. Recent data as of September 2017, show that more than 90% of Americans now consume some news online, and two-thirds read some on social media. For those under 50, digital media has already surpassed TV. This class will explore these phenomena and test your skill at detecting what is fake and what is real.
