Episode 1: Fake News W/Guest

Episode 1: Dr. Martinez discusses the meaning of Fake News with guest Professor of Media & Communication Dr. Keith Massie

In this episode, Dr. Keith Massie, professor of communication at Kutztown University, explores the meaning of “fake news.”

It is all too often that major media news outlets forgo objectivity and appear ever increasingly “biased.”

But is “biased reporting” itself “fake news”?

Dr. Massie identifies the core problem of “fake news” may not be in the news at all, but in our abilities to inform ourselves and read more carefully, or in other words, transform noise into knowledge.
