Can you tell the difference between real news and fake news? And when should you “go viral?” Fake News is a media studies course in which students will take on the role of becoming fact-checkers.  We’ll look at popular news sources from Twitter® and Facebook® to NYTimes Online and Huffington Post to analyze and evaluate what’s real from fake.  By the end of the class, students will have a better understanding of what’s newsworthy enough to pass on.
