Al Tompkins Takes on Misinformation in “Critical Thinking to Fight Fake News”

Al Tompkins of Poynter Institute hates the term “fake news” that you could hear it in the bluntness of his tone when he opened his lecture, “Critical Thinking to Fight Fake News” at the Excellence in Journalism 2018 Conference. The lecture provided a biting take on the spread of misinformation by showing real-world examples of  actual fake news and demonstrating how fake news can be manufactured and spread.
