Today on the show: a conversation about fake news, media ethics and the firewall between newsrooms and their corporate owners. Dave Vergobbi, a professor of communication at the University of Utah and former president of the American Journalism Historians Association, talks about must-run messages from the Sinclair Broadcast Group and what it means for news consumers if Sinclair acquires more local TV stations; and listeners share the ways they separate fact from fiction when sorting through the news.
