Fake news and the future of journalism | Robert Hernandez | TEDxKC
What is real? What is fake? Certainly where you stand colors your answer. But what if you could be fooled, tricked by a special interest or simply trolled?
Immersive journalism is set to become the next "fake news" battleground. Can the Fourth Estate save us from the future of fake news? Welcome to the most exciting and worrisome time for journalism.
Robert Hernandez is an associate professor of professional practice at USC Annenberg, but he’s not an academic. He’s more of a “hackademic” and specializes in “MacGyvering” web journalism solutions. His current focus is exploring and developing the intersection of technology and journalism. He has worked for seattletimes.com, SFGate.com, eXaminer.com, La Prensa Gráfica, among others.
