We shouldn't laugh about it then I'm Burnett. I think it's incredibly dangerous. And are really concede. Bread disclose how we stop it but. Large enough as always we go to the experts released at Collins with this. Visiting professor of journalism loyalty university. Please welcome the show appreciated that time. Have you taken a look at this one well on the late news. We spent a significant dramatic times that actor a not fake news and how it's a real problem. And part of my concern about it means that you know I'm I'm thinking about. And they come in with really low level of media literacy so we treat them you know what is incredible news how to use the line. What real news compared to a they line. The a lot of older don't have trouble discerning what's fact and what is fiction. Especially on the immediate right. And in novel. We're we're getting something called false flag. Media have you heard about that. I heard back but acting out about. You know what it means keeping the story is this confident are you for the weekend. It's really scary that person poll believed that he won it health and at the these claims that. Pizza restaurant was being used at their headquarters for the green he. Had a feeling. Factory and there's no truth to this story it. You know they don't being into the at these. That it started as a group on me on. A chat board. And then some people start you re tweeting and treatment and it's your turn to Latin. Michael and who in a charm that president elect Donald Trump's choice for armed. Four ahead and say I hit actually leading some some of these can. The team exactly. Say you know what we want to hear it a little bit of. But what are Murray usually of these they did not draw that boring to Washington DC. When he backed out to end the pleased interrogated him he said I was going to do is prove that. So that the people go to making phone and in discounting. Valid media sites. Would be. Cleared. So the Paulson had allegation. Is that is. You going to have said to bush and that is so ludicrous it is beyond believe put people believed it. And when it's on the verge of being built proved. You going to do and say well. The only reason I was there was a herd ops that started it in the first place. He and I think that concern as a journalist you're out of the talent you know. We we want people to the journalist who journalistic institutions. At. As I'm by end. Good sources that perk it stacks. You know you don't need it how I like to be a journalist in the spotlight in the doctor or attorney pat pat the car in medical. Journalists take that charge expose them achieve it very seriously and concern me that there are. People who think you know which it can't track media and we have the dollar well I'll bet me. And and that's frustrating because. Traditional media it is they're not reporting it because pretty tightly they're they are rumors and you know YouTube and every call today. If you've seen these beat these crazy story by you know people believe they. Poll out today. That app as C news published and they said that. About 75 cent of the time. American adults at school by eight it well that's a pretty high number when. You enter. And if you are under note earlier reported that about 44% of US adult and get their news on. So then it's up to the consumer to decide. The iron from fiction and what we're getting their news from. Social platforms. Aren't take a break we're longer ago breeder believes are calling and visiting professor of journalism. Loyola university. And doe were talking about big news.
