New college course on fake news


It's a sign of the times.


The University of Michigan is now offering a new class called "Fake News, Lies, and Propaganda: How to Sort Fact From Fiction.”


Course developer Angie Oehrli says the course is designed to provide students with skills that will allow them to recognize and avoid fabricated stories that pass themselves off as legitimate news.


She says fake and sensationalized news is becoming a serious concern to both consumers and journalists since the presidential election.
