The Department of Political Science invites you to attend "Pizza and Politics," a monthly pop-up lecture series on current political issues and topics of the day.
"What Is Fake News?"
Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020 | Noon - 1 P.M.
We hear the term "fake news" from all quarters these days: from the media, from politicans and from the President himself. How can news be fake? Is anything that is unpleasant really fake news - what does this term even mean?
UNO Political Science Instructor Travis King alongside Information Security Consultant Tyler Rosonke will discuss the fake news: what it means, how the concept has shifted in the public discourse, the impact of fake news on politics and how you can shield yourself from it.
"Pizza and Politics" is a monthly pop-up lecture series hosted by the Department of Political Science to address current political issues and topics of the day. Pizza is provided, or feel free to bring a lunch of your own. Have questions? Contact Elizabeth Chalecki or the Political Science department at 402.554.2624.
