Fake News Negotiating Politics and Society in a Post-Truth World
Once the province of supermarket tabloids, intentionally false news is having a big cultural moment -- or possibly something more dangerous and permanent -- in today's hyper-partisan world. Not coincidentally, Oxford Dictionaries chose "post-truth" as its 2016 Word of the Year. Our panel examines the consequences of living in an age of politicized truth, "alternative facts" and selective reality.
