SIO5: Fake News Epidemic

Today I’m talking with Dr. Joel Breakstone, director of the Stanford History Education Group. He was co-director of a recent study that looked at thousands of students, from middle school through college, and tested their ability to discern fake news from real news. The results are worrying, and may give us some insight into why this is such a problem in America today.

Then I take a few minutes to talk to Bruce Gleason, Director of LogiCal LA about their upcoming conference.
