- Concrete Examples
Communications and media professors Melissa Zimdars and Kembrew McLeod offer a well-edited, well-curated collection of academic essays addressing false news stories in politics, the erosion of serious journalism, and the failure of technology and social media self-regulation to control lies and hateful propaganda. The 30 authors of these wide-ranging pieces do not shy away from controversy as they analyze the issues and pose relevant, thought-provoking questions.
