fighting fake news

All the news that isn’t

In the age of social media, it can be hard to tell truth from fiction.

Enter Mo Jang, an assistant professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, and mass communication Ph.D. student Jo-Yun “Queenie” Li. Jang and Li were part of a research team that looked at the origins and spread of fake news on Twitter.
