How Real is Fake News? | Sharyl Attkisson | TEDx University of Nevada (Video)

Quoting from the introduction to this video (which was published on Feb 13, 2018):

Connect the dots and learn who’s behind it and why. It’s not what you think.

Sharyl Attkisson is a five-time Emmy Award winner and recipient of the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative reporting and author of two New York Times bestsellers: “The Smear” and “Stonewalled.” Attkisson hosts the Sunday national TV news program “Full Measure,” which focuses on investigative and accountability reporting.

For thirty years, Attkisson was a correspondent and anchor at PBS, CNN and CBS News, where the Washington Post described her as “a persistent voice of news-media skepticism about the government’s story.”  She’s a fourth degree blackbelt in TaeKwonDo.
