Attacking BS in the Media

(Professor Ziad Munson)

1:30pm - 2:30pm
We get much of our information, not to mention our entertainment, from the media.  And we all know that a lot of it is-- let's be honest-- bullshit.  But how do we know when we're being bullshitted?  And perhaps more important, how do we call out BS when we see it, in ways that are effective and constructive?
