Living in a World of Fake News

Feb 14, 2018

We sit down with Ron Feemster, 

Journalism professor at Florida Southwestern State College, to discuss his upcoming lecture “Living in a World of Fake News” which is part of FSW’s Critical Thinking Lectures Series. Professor Feemster has researched the history of “fake news” back to the dawn of the printing press. He says the world we live in today is quite similar to that of colonial times in terms of how publishers try to hold an audience, except now publishing is far cheaper, has no geographical boundaries, and moves at the speed of light.

His lecture is Monday, February 19, 6-7 p.m. on the main FSW campus, Building U-102; Charlotte Campus: Building O-117; Collier Campus: Building M-201; Hendry/Glades Curtis Center: Building A-106.
