We know this episode comes hot on the heels of Episode 3, but we had a great conversation about fake news, journalism, and truth, and since these are timely topics, we wanted to post this quickly. (This episode was recorded on April 11, 2017. The resources we discussed in this episode may have changed after our conversation.) While we’re getting the podcast established, we will probably post new episodes more frequently, but once we settle in we’ll aim for a more regular, every 3-4 week schedule.
We know this is a hot topic for librarians now, and we definitely want to hear from you. Share your thoughts about fake news. How do you teach about it? Is “fake news” a useful term? What do librarians need to know about these issues? Leave us a comment, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
