30571 Modern American Journalism: A History - OLLI Scholar   NEW!

Journalism is in a state of crisis, but the crisis is not new. Terms we hear every day—like fake news, misinformation, and media bias—have roots in the American past, from World War I to Watergate to the War on Terror. To understand the making of our current moment, this course uses readings, media, lectures, and discussion to explore the history of modern journalism in the United States, from the early 20th century to the present.
