Full Description: Fake news is not new. Its current incarnation is the outcome of several legislative, social, and technological shifts over the past 150 years, including but not limited to business strategies, media industry deregulation, audience fragmentation, and communication technologies that make every consumer into a producer. This talk outlines the relationship between audiences and media, explores how newspaper, broadcast, and digital journalism deploy psychological needs to garner ratings, and describes journalistic strategies that promote media literacy.
