Grabowski, who teaches media law and ethics, was also interviewed by San Diego radio station KOGO 600 on fake news.
He has a forthcoming article on "How to prevent fake news in scholastic media" in Communication: Journalism Education Today. It will be published in the Summer edition of the magazine for journalism educators.
"Many and varied examples of fake news ... have appeared in student media in recent years," Grabowski wrote. "And it might get worse.

In addition, Grabowski has given lectures on fake news at Adelphi University, St. John's University and Marymount Manhattan College. To invite him to speak on your campus, click here.
