“Communicating in an Era of Echo Chambers and Fake News”– a live webinar discussion with Jennifer Henderson, Ph.D., and Aaron Delwiche, Ph.D. Professors of Communication, Trinity University

The phrase "fake news" has been thrown around quite a bit during the past two years, but what does it really mean? This webinar discussion will address the following questions:

  • What does it mean to say that news is fake, and how do our own biases come into play when making this judgment?
  • What is the difference between objective news coverage, opinion news, and so-called ‘fake news?’
  • How are bots, sock-puppets and trolls propagating disinformation and reinforcing partisan echo chambers?
  • In an era of immediate, 24/7 information, how can we identify real news from "fake”?
