Florida Matters: Social Media, "Fake News" and Politics

Daylina Miller

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 Sussingham was Senior Editor at WUSF until September 2020.
