LWVJC: Conspiracies, Hoaxes and Rumors - Discerning Facts in a 24/7 News Cycle

Listen to an audio podcast of this program.

Jean Donham presents Conspiracies, Hoaxes and Rumors: Discerning Facts in a 24/7 News Cycle. She addresses false - and potentially dangerous - stories that are presented as news, and explores disinformation and misinformation -- how it proliferates, why it is accepted and its impact.

A longtime educator, Ms. Donham taught at the University of Iowa, University of Northern Iowa and Cornell College before retiring. Ms. Donham earned English/Education B.A. from the UI, a M.A. in Library and Information Studies from the University of Maryland, and a Ph.D. from the UI.
