The Real Deal On Fake News

Nov 20, 2017

Where is the tipping point between a media source having a bias and one that is reporting fake news? And how can you spot news that really is fake?

Brendan Nyhan, Dartmouth College professor of government joins us to answer these questions and how to combat the preponderance of fake news.

He and his students recently issued a report — Real Solutions for Fake News? — that dives into the epidemic of fake news we're exposed to.

We also hear from Cyndy Scheibe, a professor of psychology at Ithaca College, about a program called "Media Literacy in Every Classroom," designed for use by teachers in grades K through 12.
