We explore how the 2016 presidential election was affected by social media, fake news and fact checking, and discuss the new face of journalism and its effect on our political system.

In this show, taped in front of a live audience at the WUSF studio,  WUSF's Carson Cooper talks to Peter Schorsch, the publisher of SaintPetersblog.com and Sunburn; Joshua Gillin of Politifact Florida; and USF Communications Professor Kelli Burns.

Robin is Senior Editor at WUSF, spearheading the station's podcasting initiatives and helping to guide the vision for special reporting projects and creative storytelling. She created The Zest, the station's podcast that's all about food, which she continues to host and serve as senior producer.
