About the Project
Democracy and Fake News was created as a final project for MMC 6612: New Media and Democracy. This graduate level course at the University of Florida focuses on what a democratic society is and how the media shapes the world we live in.
After reading multiple academic and news articles, Tucker and Erin decided to analyze how individuals on the University of Florida campus interact and see fake news. They bridged research, writing and media in order to convey how fake news is viewed.
