Fake News is Old News
In this interactive talk, Matt Rooney, an attorney and the founder of SaveJersey.com, will explore the controversial “fake news” phenomenon from the perspective of a social media commentator. Rooney’s analysis will include an in-depth look at the establishment media’s under-discussed role in bringing about the demise of its own credibility, the corresponding ascent of new media sources (like Save Jersey), and the rise of fake news amid the conflict.
