Course Description

The biggest seismic shift in news since the invention of the printing press occurred between 1999 and 2019. An instantaneous news cycle shared in the palm of a hand on a phone shattered the old paradigm of print journalism. The notion of objectivity is being challenged by audiences that seek a reflection of their own beliefs and values in their news consumption. Social media and late-night entertainers are supplanting traditional stewards of information such as newspapers and network television. Concerns about fairness, fact-checking, and investigations of private and public corruption are still needed. On the eve of the 2020 election cycle, with a news industry that has been vilified as the enemy of the people, this course explores the current state of journalism.  Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion
