Fake News, Trolling and other things made to get you mad: The days of traditional media controlling what you see and how it is reported has gone by the wayside. In its vacuum, we have newer dangers to navigate including dissimulation, bias, sins of omission, straight-up false news stories, alternative facts, trolling, Pepes, Deplorables and an entire array of different tactics being utilized by various forces for different reasons. In some cases, they want to control what you think and feel, in other cases, they simply want clicks. In most cases, it is a combination of both. In this dizzying information environment, Prof. Falcon will attempt to help you identify some of the features of the new information landscape and give you some simple tools to evaluate what you see fighting for your eyeballs every time you pick up your phone or sit at your computer. It will be brisk, fast paced, and controversial, fun, infuriating and—most importantly—give you tools to use to defend yourself in the war for your mind. Everyone is welcome!
