Conspiracy theories. Hoaxes. Doctored content. Clickbait. Deep fakes and cheap fakes. How do you spot disinformation when it’s blurred with real news? Learn about the dangers of fake news intended to mislead and deceive the public about the facts. In this two-part teach-in, Jour365 News literacy students will help detect fraudulent and fabricated information and identify action strategies to counter different types of disinformation. This project is a community engagement collaboration with the NewseumED/Freedom Forum Institute in Washington, D.C.
In partnership with the Mike Curb College of Arts, and NewseumED.
