ENGWRT 1377-1020 - spring course
What is truth — and does it matter?
News affects how we think, vote, trust, and live our lives. But we're getting more and more bogged down with uncurated, false information — sometimes well-hidden under a sleek facade. What is "fake news," where did it come from, and why is it everywhere?
This is where news, fake news, Russian spies and social media come together, challenging democracy, the First Amendment and what you think you know.
Join the world of tech boys, bots, twisted facts, and fixed elections. Advertisers, secret leakers, hackers — discover how do they all fit into the ever-evolving narrative of journalism.
Take this course if you: want an inside look at what's happening behind the scenes of mass media.
